6 posts in this topic

Hi everybody! Newbie here, I hope this is a good first post. Excuse me if pics too big.

I am not a serious collector of coins but have always loved details. I have a pretty good stamp collection and cut gemstones for fun and profit.

Anyway, found this guy in a roll when they first came out. It is a Wash. dollar coin, obverse seems normal, but the reverse is loaded with die cracks.

Top of $ going straight up.

Inside top opening of $

Curved, from tip of $ towards the 1

1 or 2 radial cracks in armpit area

From bottom of torch to the east. (2nd photo)

Extra spike below chin(3rd photo)

Rainbow crack at top of head

Thats a ding going across the 1. All lettering normal.

Thats 7 or more on one side easily visible, and I am no expert. EDIT

I cant get a picture, but there is another crack extending west from the tip of lefthand complete spike. You can sort of see it in the 2nd photo. Thoughts? tx7_zpsq8vd5lev.jpgtx6_zpsxdxxjeiq.jpgtx5_zpsqgxhgxgb.jpgtx4_zpsxntrhqfw.jpgtx3_zpsoynnhro1.jpgtx2_zpszscqknrr.jpgtx1_zpswjhopkrx.jpg
