Die-Gouged, Raised line from Cuba into the heart of the South America...Easily seen on this coin.

Different coins, with SAME reverse die with "Cuban Missile" die gouge.

The first one is a 73-P
The other 2 are 72-P Type 3's...One in PCGS, one raw.
Hhhhmmmmm....kinda interesting!....:shock:

Happy Hunting!

Promoted 72 T3 working die becomes a 73 master die?

My thoughts exactly,...but take it a step further...I'm pretty dang sure I've seen this same "Cuban Missile" Earth on 73-S Silver Poof Ikes, or perhaps 73-S MS Ikes! :o
Not positive, but it is ringing an alarm bell somewhere else in my head....Gotta go digging again.... :shock:

Happy Hunting!

Pretty sure it on the 73D RPMs. (Don't have them in front of me)
