This one isn't all that amazing, and 1946-S certainly had some issues, but really hadn't seen one quite this wiped out before.

Still fairly nice for a Wheatie. These stronger ones don't pop up too much.

I am not sure why I have so much affection for these "over the top" extreme greasers, but I do! Nice pickup!

Could it be a weak strike? http://goccf.com/t/368345

@TB, a nice pick-up. What do you think is going on with the rim at about 3 o'clock on the rev? Is that just an old hit or some weird cud-like thing?

Nice find but I was wondering the same thing as John1.
(Maybe even a tapered planchet as well or just circulation?)

I think it's a low pressure or high clearance strike.
