I have heard of Machine Doubling, but not Machine Tripling. Check out the photo of the Jefferson's portrait and collar. Interesting that the writing shows no doubling. Thoughts?

I don't think it is common, but there are many coins with multiple strikes out there. Great find though!

Looks like a good bounce of the dies during striking.

Very odd... I would think IGWT, Liberty, and the date would be affected...

A beautiful example of machine tripling. I've even seen a few that have quadruple impressions. I do collect dramatic examples of Machine Doubling and would be interested in adding this one to my collection. If you have any desire to part with it, please contact me at mdia1@aol.com. -- Mike Diamond

Cool find. It could be multiple strikes or a multiple strike and die bounce. It would be interesting to see first hand.
