I have this 1967 P LMC that is odd in the fact that the Memorial has a wavy roof. What could have caused this? I've seen wavy steps (upper and lower steps) but this is my first roof. Insight needed.

Maybe a grease filled die?

John1, that could be the answer. I donít have a clue. I have quite a few 1967 P LMCís and this is the only one Iíve have seen with the roof like this on any year. Probably just an anomaly.

It's struck through grease.

To me it looks like isolated die polishing altered the width/height of the roof line. When the over polishing is to strong, the the devices/building gets thinner. Thus the affected area was affected by several clashes. When over polished, the fields and mid devices were weakened and now the narrowed lower part of the devices are making some areas looking smaller. Thus the wavy affect of the roof line. (Probably the EPU was also affected making the devices there weaker. A closer side by side of a normal coin and this one, the EPU would probably show the narrowing better.

Thanks Mr. Coop! I know that struck through grease will widen and flatten the devises. What youíre telling me makes sense. Still a pretty neat cent.

Yeah, a little too much die polishing!

It is an "Elbow-grease" filled strike...
