So, I was just going through a roll of UNC 1966-P LMC and I came across 6 of these. Can someone please tell me what it is? filled die maybe? I'm looking at columns #3, #7, and #8. Thank you for your help!

welp, that was not as exciting as I was hoping... haha thanks, I did consider that. I'm going to look up some examples of overpolished die stuck coins so I can learn to identify them better. I appreciate It!

It may be part of a die clash.Not sure what is going on at the 9k obverse position.

Note a variety coin. Just as mentioned an over polishing issue on the reverse. A very spendable coin.

Thank you very much sir! That bring a question to mind though. When a coin has been Struck Through Grease is it grease thats used to lubricate the machinery? Where does the grease come from, and what makes a Struck Through Grease coin worth something but an overpolished die stuck coin worth face value? In my mind they both produce similar looking coins, and is kind of the same concept, right?... or am I totally wrong? haha Thank you for your help!

@John when you say 9k you mean the 9 oclock, right? I did find several die clashes in this roll. Nothing too impressive but noticeable. The back of Lincolns neck between column 3&4, and his beard after columns 8&9 I believe.. But those were all on the rev.

Yes,9k=9o'clock. The reverse is where I see a die clash.

Yes, the coin press is lubricated with grease, and is the most likely source of grease in a struck thrugh grease coin. Interest level in these types of errors is all about how much the coin differs from its normal appearance, regardless of whether the cause is polishing, struck thru, or something else.

Ok I see. That makes more sense. I was thinking whats the difference.. So basically an overpolished die just creates a specific type of strike through, correct?

Thank you guys for answering my questions! I have one more question. Coop said that its not a variety. But the coin differs from the average coin. And I have 6 that all have the same anomaly.
The way I understood the difference between errors and varieties is that varieties are repeated and errors are a one off. So wouldnt this technically be a variety, even if its not considered valuable?

Die varieties are Doubled dies and RPMs on the 20 & 21st. Century coins.
Die events are what happens to dies during their lives.
Striking issues are issues spotted on coins that can/can't affect their values. Struck Through Grease most of the time doesn't have a premium unless most of the devices are missing. Die polishing is a die event that can happen on normal/proof/doubled dies. Doesn't increase the value. (Most collectors prefer not to buy problem coins, new collectors don't care yet. But seasoned collectors are selective buyers. They usually don't grab the first example seen. Wait for the right one to buy. They also prefer earlier die state coins. And don't like Machine Doubling as it distracts from the varieties they seek.
