Nice. I like that rippling effect. It looks like WE TRUST is not obstructed or missing at all and LIBERTY is partially visible. Would this one be a late-stage or only a partial brockage where only part of the die is covered (if there is such a thing as a partial?) A partial brockage might help explain the "rippling" around the perimeter. Even the top of Lincoln's head looks fully formed.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.
Pete, from what I understand, a brockage is defined by the transfer of incuse devices onto a planchet by a previously struck coin. A brockage can turn into a die cap strike through, but a die cap strike though is not necessarily the end result of a brockage. Since there's no trace of any incuse devices from the die cap, this wouldn't be considered a brockage, but a deteriorating die cap strike through, because there's no way to tell what the cap originally looked like. I believe the rippling is the result from the stress on the die cap as the metal fatigues from multiple strikes. As the cap spreads thinner and thinner, you will begin to see the obverse die reflected onto the strike-throughs.
