Okay, so picked up this coin today for 4 bucks locally, all the devices were surrounded by 100 year old grime, so soaked it for a couple minutes in acetone and most of it came off, so I examined it closer.
This is when I noticed, the coin is slightly dished...the Obverse is deeper than the reverse, but no damage signifying that it has been slammed in the face or the reverse. What could cause that during the die process? Just something I havent seen other than on capped dies, possibly broadstrike?
I put it back in the acetone for a bit, gonna try and get the gunk out of the devices...this coin is in quite good shape. better than expected.*** Moved by Staff moved to a more appropriate forum. ***
