COIN REEDING ?

9 posts in this topic

What causes a coin to have the reeding missing on just 1/3 of the coin? The coin in question is not an out of collar strike, an off center strike or misaligned dies.

 

All answers welcome.

If the missing portion is at the same height as the reeded portion, it may be the result of a collar cud or broken portion of the collar.

It looks like with each succesive reeding they disappear into a blank planchet and then the reeding starts to appear again with each succesive reeding. A very strange looking coin. It sort of looks like the reeding tapers into a blank and then tapers back into reading again.
