While it looks like it is just starting to show DDD
, it is actually a die that was polished and removing the first stage of the DDD
Note the size of the devices, they are reduced in size. So the die on stage 2 will start to form the Ridge Ring
stage. So it is advancing in die age. When the Ridge Ring
forms it will look like this:Stage 1:Field distortion towards the closest rim directions:Stage 2: Ridge Ring
When that is removed, the next step of die polishing will weaken the devices a lot more.Stage 3: Extreme Die Polishing:Stage 4: Will show a distortion on the fields:
All parts of the aging process. Not a plus for these examples. But to help during your searches, know what is going on, trains your eyes, so you can move on to the next coin. Is there a Stage 5?
So far it hasn't been revealed yet to me. (This process so far is noted more on cents) But I feel it also affects other dies as well. CoopHome
: DDD? What is that?
stages of die aging. not a premium for the coins, just what is going on with these single squeezed dies with the lower profiles.
