Extra Moon Craters Discovered on this 1974 Ike (PCGS MS65)

Post by FS-801 » Wed May 08, 2019 10:05 pm

This past weekend I was photographing more of my slabbed Ikes. When I got to the reverse of this 1974 (PCGS MS65) I noticed extra moon craters. One is located on the "E" of ONE, and the other is inside the crater just above the second "L" of DOLLAR. I believe this is a strike-thru error caused by grease droplets. Do you guys concur? It's a pretty neat error that's been hiding in plain sight all along. :)

Strike through? Yes.

Grease? Unlikely.

That's a hard debris shape. Grease will feather out on the edges.

I gotcha. Since the edges are so sharp and delineated I’m inclined to think metal fragments. Any other possible culprits?
