1976-D Type 2 "Dots" assume "Crater Clash" from Moon Craters

Post by Windycity » Sat Jan 21, 2017 2:02 pm

Here are images of a 1976-D that I noticed "Dots" by Ike's ear... assume these must be moon crater clash marks. One is quite obvious to the naked eye the second is more tucked into the very front side of Ike's ear. Coin show heavy die polish lines both obverse and reverse. Welcome opinions. Would this be listable?

They do look like craters....

In my mind, however, that clash seems almost impossible without a lot more clash damage and therefore marks.

Stranger things have happened. I like it. Got a second one?

My guess is the die was heavily clashed but then polished to remove evidence of clashing.... hence the heavy die polishing. Also, if you look closely in front of Ike's eye there appears to be a clash mark there that could be the support for the Bell.

I love it!! :D

It's naked-eye easy and one I've never seen before. Hopefully, we can find a few more.
Good DIVa potential here! :shock:

Happy Hunting!

Sure looks like the moon crater was the culprit for the dots in front of the ear and on the ear. See overlay here:

and another image:

I've got a number of the bell to the nose clash 76D's. How can I help with adding bicentennial Ikes to the clash list? There are a few: bell to nose, upper lip to below bell yoke, moon to right of, under, and left of portrait, bell yoke to under chin, etc.

I have finally found another with same clashing... not too the there are other clash marks that seem to confirm that the dots are in fact crater clash marks. Note the Moon clash off the back of Ike's head and Bell Support clash marks nears God We. These all support the clashing overlay image posted by NEKRay. Diva Worthy and should I send in?
