I was having a look at what might be a struck-through mark in the waterlines in front of the canoe and found a die crack close by instead (not sure if the mark was a struck-through or a scrape). Looked some more and found another die crack at the back of the canoe.




Flipped it over,



and found some strange things; extra metal in various letters and a die crack in ABE. Also a tiny crack on the T of GRATIA.







Would the extra metal be a result of plating coming off of the die ?

Well I see a die crack across the bottom of Elizabeth from Z to T.
MD on the devices.
Possible rolling lines or polishing marks on the field.
Extra metal coming off the die, most likely, no.

I agree with the MD and small D/C's

And neither are considered errors.

Flat field doubling on the obverse.

Thanks SPP !
I had to look up "flat field doubling" and found out it's caused from the second strike on a proof coin being slightly mis-aligned and leaving part of the previous strike. WOW, I've got a proof-like 1953 dollar !
PL-62 ?

When I first saw the coin in the original post I remembered having a coin with die cracks at the front and rear of the canoe.
At first I thought my coin was the same as Terry's coin above but after a closer look it appears to be a different die all together.
Note this coin is a short water line variety where Terry's has full water lines also the exact locations of the die cracks.

Cheers, Bill
