Hey All,

Just found this one, and I'm curious what you all think is going on. Its so old I guess its probably PMD, but the way the metal on the coin is raised in areas makes me believe its maybe from the mint this way. Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks!

PMD, former encased coin?

Interesting but pretty sure most (all?) is PSD. The weight might be helpful but have my doubts because of the age and condition.

Although the obverse looks like normal circulation wear, it doesn't have obvious damage transferred from the reverse issues.
The area between the rim and upper left wheat might possibly be a retained die crack (precud). I looks like a corrosive substance (acid?) caused that depression at the upper right wheat as well as most of the reverse.

The incuse area around the bottom of the reverse rim may have been pushed up or ground away with the direction of the grinding creating a slight ridge (and looking like a possible die crack).

The area around the bottom left wheat might have been a lamination that peeled back and left the ridge but with all the other damage it's not likely.

Agree, PSD that's difficult to reconstruct.

Given the wear, that seems about right.

Looks like it was burned. Looks like a hard road traveled coin. Hole filler in an album, until you get a nicer example.
