Agreed, welding a tempered die would completely ruin the heat treatment of the die. I was a machinist for years and worked with hundreds of different dies. I have also wire welded hundreds of parts to be put back into service. There is no stick or wire welder with thin enough wire to patch a die. I am not being disrespectful but this comes from years and years of working with such things.

I was a welder at one time in my working career and was able to tig weld the hinge back on my Zippo lighter without affecting the pin.
I guess it's plausible to weld a damaged die but not likely.

The first image you posted appears to be a linear plating blister above an "N" (the image is sideways).

I wonder if the first images of the Jefferson nickel are showing evidence of a clash?

you have a very good eye on you Pete. well here is one for you. this looks like a double arrow head on Jefferson neck. I would think this is a strike through.

That doesn't make any sense. Jefferson nickels are made of a homogeneous alloy. The color is the same all the way through.

here is some more welds. I know you guys know this. but see when you get a die chip. it leaves a hole in the die. so what the mints have been doing is repairing die chip holes plus some deformations. they also use the welds to strengthen and make certain edges harder. we have done a lot of that. when we were pressing steel. there is always wear points weld can be used to strengthen them. I know the welders here will know that. we also used the same practice on bulldozer blades, excavator buckets and excavator rock hammers. all we were trying to do was make the attachments last longer. that is the same idea at the mints with there dies.
