Hi All,
Not sure what happened with this obverse die...?
Looks like ants at a picnic.
Couldn't capture a full obverse pic with my CAM set up...these are from my cheap scope...and the reverse is unremarkable (normal)
Over all coin is in AU condition with pleanty of color to call him RB.
Do you think it was caused by a rusted/corroded die? Acid treated die?
Does not look like PMD or science experiment or surface corrosion...?
Anyone else seen something like this on a LMC?
Click on pic's to zoom in for a close up.
Sorry about all the pic's and Thanks for looking!

More likely exposure to something acidic. The working dies in 1971 were heavily used with no chance to rust.

I would think if it was acid, it would affect the whole coin. I found a few 54s in a unc roll that looked like this around the edge. I chocked it up to rusty die.

Acid does sound like the culprit...this would cause pitting on the die...thus having incuse markes and when striking the plancet would leave raised impressions on the coin.
Thanks for helping me out BT

Or slightly gritty grease/oil on those areas in the die, thus leaving this look on the coins raised devices and not seen on the fields.

Looks like it's on both fields and devices too me. Not acid on the die, Thad is saying acid on the coin. This is rust on the die. There should be more of them out there minted with this die.
