Thanks Mike. My final opinion on this coin is 100% struck on split plan. I was able to magnify the side of the coin and it definitely isn't as thick as it should be. I may send it back in but don't want to break it out of the case. My reason being there's a scratch on the coin and I don't know how it straight graded.

Just a quick follow-up. I have a friend who worked at the Denver Mint during this era. I talked with him last night. He remembered the knuckle-joint presses very well, and not fondly. He said that he never saw them used for anything except quarters and half dollars.

I think we can scratch the knucklers from the list of possibilities.

Hey guys I got tired of looking at this coin and not knowing exactly what is going on. I was very surprised to see that the weight is spot on?

Freed from its plastic tomb! With the weight being correct, I guess we are down to some exotic explanations. I look forward to learning more.

Yes sir. I messaged Mike and said I had broken it out of the case and the weight was correct. We'll see.

The normal weight leaves me uncertain as to what's going on. If it's a rolled-in texture, the substance responsible is a mystery. I suppose a very thin split-off sheet of copper could have been dislodged and landed on this area of otherwise normal strip, imparting the texture of its split face, but that's just a wild guess. Another possibility is that this was originally a thick planchet, and the loss of a thin layer before the strike restored it to an approximately normal weight.

Well Mike I appreciate the look anyway. If you think the coin in hand would do any better I would be glad to send it to you. But the pictures represent the texture very well.

I was thinking a slightly heavy plan as well that happened to split at 3.2 grams.

A third possibility is that one of the rollers was coated with a lumpy substance that was stretched out in the direction of the moving strip. That substance then left a corresponding uneven yet linear texture in the strip.

I would be happy to examine it for you and potentially write it up for Coin World. Just send me a PM and I'll tell you where to send it.

Thanks Dearborn and Mike. Dearborn I took a look at your ASE set. Very nice! You know there are a couple of big DDOs in the series.
