Common area for these I know. Interesting shape and has some good eye appeal so I thought I would post. Chip on the dome as well.

I like that.
Zooming in on the last picture, you can see a faint crack running down the stairs and turning towards and running to the rim.
The top has another nice crack extending towards the rim.
Almost a pre-cud.

Thanks for sharing.

The obverse looks a bit weak. Is the weight normal for this one? (5 grams?)

from a distance the chip on the left of the building looks like it could have been a bush and part of the design - Until you zoomed in and showed the close-up.

So the planchet was a little light and that made the design weaker a bit. Also the medium die chip also took some of the metal that was there, also making the obverse weaker.

Hi CoinHI,
I'm glad I helped.
For the people who don't see the cracks, look closer.
If you look at the right side of the Memorial, where that die break is, you can see the polished out remains of a die clash.
There is a raised horizontal line in that right side doorway directly in-line with the top of the die break.

I don't just look at a coin, I study them.
