Edge-incused lettering on a rim ding

5 posts in this topic

I picked up a roll of Jefferson Dollars today and have three in the bunch that have something I've not seen before. My best guess is that the coins had rim dings prior to going in for edge-lettering and so the lettering gets stamped (best it can) into the ding and the resulting letter/number is warped as a result. My examples have this happening on the 0 in '2007' the '7' in 2007 and the 'D' in '2007 D'. The messed up 7 is the most interesting, I think, because the ding is almost circular or like a little divet and so at first glance it looks sort of like an extra 0 making this a "2000 D" Jefferson Dollar. ;)


Don't have my camera with me, and doubt I could capture it anyway, but if I can get a photo of it, I'll add it here.


Anyone else seen this phenomenon?
