.Hi, everyone. I saw a CCF post discussing a flared FG RDV-006. I tried looking at my sorted "wild" 1988 LMCs. I wasn't successful in finding RDV-006. This carbon afflicted coin is what I found. I can see excessive die abrasions, die chip south of building's right lowerncorner, Struck Through Grease...what kind of die issue is occuring from the rim (360 degrees of reverse) towards the devices? In my layman's term, I call it "waterfalls" or a caramel strawberry fountain. The experts have the right term. Does this type of coin signal the retirement of working dies? Thanks in advance.

Metal flow from a worn die issue.

That's called metal flow. It's happens when the die gets old and worn. You took great pictures as well.

Another help E&V, how do you copy & paste with the white block encasing whatever was pasted. Thanks.) I am putting into practice Coop's photography instructions. It seems like I am progressively learning. LOL...YES...fun hobby...thanks coin experts
