Hi Guys! This is my first macro camera whole coin photo I have taken using my Neewer $12 mono-pod camera stand I got from Amazon
overnight with free shipping!
Here is the link to a beginner's macro camera stand:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...e=UTF8&psc=1
As for the 1966 Kennedy, I earned it free from a dealer at a local coin show a week ago Saturday in exchange for teaching him about MD and greased die strike examples I found in his inventory.
This freebie Kennedy first seemed closest to a die clip coin. But I have seen die clips before, and they look like a semi-circular bite has been taken out of the coin. This example is NOT the classic die clip, but it does not look like post-strike damage from circulation, either. On the reverse directly opposite the area of interest on the obverse, there is also something going on that also does not look like post-strike damage.
So, in summation, I haven't the foggiest as to what this coin's problems are called. As a newbie, I have already learned from y'all about acid-etched coins, MD on coins, greased die strike coins, and about extreme late stage die deterioration* as found in one of my CRH quarters. I am looking forward to what I will learn from this coin!
Thank you for your help
* P.S. At a local coin show yesterday, I saw a 1981 US mint set
whose "P" quarter had clear signs of late stage Die Deterioration
! I taught this to that dealer as well. After, he let me look at a box behind his table containing about fifty 1971 S Unc. Eisenhower dollar
blue seal packs. Unfortunately, did not find a single "peg-leg" variety in the bunch. :-(
