2002 Ohio State Quarter Die Crack?

10 posts in this topic


I guess it could be some kind of damage to the die,but just from the looks of the pics it appears that something,possibly a piece of wire,was impressed into the planchet before striking.A piece like this would be worth something,nothing much I wouldn't think but at least some kind of premium...

You say this is a RAISED part of the coin? I ask because it looks like a scratch. Could you light it better and take the picture from an angle that shows it is raised?

The "die crack" also looks questionable. I looked under 2X magnification and I guess it could be a die crack. Perhaps the piece of metal that made the part at the top also damaged the bottom of the die?


Keep posting, these images you post are indeed interesting.
