Not one to look at many shield cents but found this today. Some raised triangular like spikes coming off the top right & left side of shield. Not sure what kind of instrument or polishing technique would have caused this as they connect to the outside perimeter of the design. No sign of it through the shield itself but they line up straight along a business card. Also, looks like I may have some die trailing off of liberty? First time Iíve seen that in hand.

Those are indeed Trial Dies on "LIBERTY". On the reverse, you have Feeder Finger Damage. http://www.error-ref.com/die-scrapes/

So the feeder finger scraped the die & that is then struck into many coins?

@WN, yes exactly. If you look at the link that E&V provided, there are some great details there.

Definitely a good example of Feeder Finger Damage/Scrapes. Maybe you can put it in a 2x2 for future reference.

On the example I found the feeder finger scrapes were lower. (which can happen)

Yeah. That seems to be the common spot to find them. I haven't come across one yet that was as extreme as the one coop posted though. I myself actually have been having more luck finding cool stuff on the shields because they obviously haven't been searched nearly as much. There's some cool things to look out for on them like a pretty severe clashed die, big die breaks, spiked heads, DD's, etc. A cool find nonetheless.

Found first one of these yesterday. I estimate I've looked through upward 5,000 2017 shield coins. Neat looking error.

They're caused by feeder finger die scrapes.

I have one just like it. No premium, just a cool cent to have.

You mean to tell me 'Lincoln's Spiky Shield of Justice' isn't a cataloged error?
