Another LWC that looks like a lamination problem? What say you?

My vote is PMD, but only because I really am not sure.

I remember Coop saying Lams are usually in a straight line - so I figured?

Yep and this certainly could be a lam. I guess my thinking was that it really looks like there are a couple gouges on Lincoln's shoulder and while these generally follow the same outline as the linear markings behind his head, they look more purposeful to me. Maybe someone noticed a somewhat light lamination and decided to dig at this area with a sharp object?

I think it is a lam. It's a bit unusual, but has the basic characteristics. I believe what made me think twice about it is that the peel came off long ago and circulation wear has made the affected area look different than I am used to seeing, i.e. smoothly rounded.

I think the continuation of the flaw to the NW behind Abe's head confirms what it is.

No, I wasn't reffering to that one - just remember reading where coop said lams are usually in a straight line.

And thanks spruett,

I'm in the lamination column. Did you recently find it, or did you have it?

It is a lamination issue. It is a strange one though. On some areas it is real thin, and other areas real deep. Keep in mind they copper is flat rolled. So if there is an imperfection in the stock they usually roll in a straight line. But first one I've seen so thin and thick to peel. Unique find. It would be special to a lamination collector because of the varying depth of the lamination.
