Tunnioc yes you are correct. but in the old days re-entry was a word used to describe. a new variety that was done. when the master die was at its end. so the mint created a new master to finish a run of coins. when that happen the the new master die had some small little different from the oringinal master. similiar to stamps. right now I am reading alot of older coin books. one of the books stated these young people. know a days always trying to change collecting language, it struck me quit funny. have a great one
I think that Hans needed to bone up a little on the preparation of dies. By his definition, EVERY die would would have been "re-entered". It took 2-3 times to both harden the original and anneal(soften) the receiving die component. It makes no difference whether you are talking about the master or the hub or the working die .. it couldn't be done in one shot. Is the OP trying to describe hub-doubling?
