1976 T1 Strike Through

Post by AndyO » Sun Dec 21, 2008 11:46 am

I came across this coin some time ago, and was looking at ti again recently. It's pretty normal for a strike through, or is it? Anyone care to explain why the strike through does not carry through the "Y" in LIBERTY? Any other strike through I have that runs from the field into any raised device, whether it be lettering or other, carries the incuse shape of the debris.

In this example, you will notice the strike through mark does not show in the Y what so ever. It runs cleanly right up against it and stops.

Interesting! The best I can come up with is that the debris like a thread or a wire was sheared off by the sharpness of the Y boundary (sharper than the head / field boundary)and disappeared (or is some of it still in the middle of the Y and now perpendicular to it). :?:

Herb, dare we bring up what you, Brian, and I have been discussing about bicentennial Ikes this past week? Let's face it, there must be a reason somewhere.

...could be a new topic
