Been gone and away for a month or more but taking a midsummer stop at the home office and home for a couple days. Still super busy but figured I'd run through a couple rolls to find something to give me an excuse to post.

Last half of the summer will be a scattershot and possibly gone the whole time or around some of the time, no way to know yet, but no time to even think about coins when at work as it sucks all the time.

Hope everyone is having a super summer!

So here is what I could find real quick last night, from an OBW roll.

Wow that's a really nice struck through! One of the best I've seen!

Hope you'll be able to get through work. Don't bother worrying about our deal, you've got too much on your plate as it is!

That's a nice struck through grease error.

Can you tell what caused the short diagonal die issue/gouge in Bay# 1 and longer vertical line in Bay# 4?

PP, honestly I can not say. They are not nearly so robust looking under the scope and when I looked at the full coin image I just wrote them off as some minor clash as that is a common area for such. But looking closer now I just am not sure.

Nice coin batts and good to see everything is well. I'm almost done with my marathon of red snapper season down here. Haven't had much time to pick coins but still managed to find a couple nice ones this month!

Hi Will, Great to hear things are going well. Saw a couple things you posted and truly good finds. Nice to be able to keep poking around for some cherrypicks even when busy so there are some Christmas presents waiting for you when you get home.

Thanks for taking a second look.
I did the same thing on first glance. And realized it wasn't typical if it is one in bay #4. Those three little curves in the bottom of bay #2 look similar to a triple jacket/coat collar clash, so that may be it.

Enjoy your time off regrouping.
