Hello all,
Found my first die clash! Looks like some possible doubling on the nose and chin?

Not sure about the doubling with these pics, but that is a nice die clash. Any signs of something similar on the rev?

Save it until you get a better example. This one has been polished.

What makes some coins look oily or greasy?

Doubt it's been polished, probably a case of bad lighting.

Keep in mind, there is coin polishing and die polishing. Coin polishing removes detail off the coin:

Die polishing affects the fields and when they are reduced the dies will be reduced making the devices smaller:


Areas in a clash area can be affected:

sub devices because flat when the polishing removes the fields too much:



So there are two types of polishing. Your thinking of one, he is thinking of another type of polishing. So to advoid the wrong idea, using terms like coin polishing and die polishing would help add more to the thought, only adding one word each time.
