Is this possibly counterclash type II ?

#1 Unread post by GonzoOznog » Tue May 29, 2018 6:00 am

Ok guys i don't want to go throwing around the "e" word again in case this is some type of environmental deterioration from circulation being that the coin is in battered condition. The writing appears inverted especially in "liberty" and "1983". It's more of an outline of the letters. Should i throw it In the trash or melt it?

i DO NOT see anything to qualify this as a 'counter clash', or 'clashed' coin from your images here
... this almost looks like a "trapped/scuffed dryer coin" ? - JMO

may i ask "WHERE" you found this coin ??

I found it in a jar of pennies. It just looks really odd like the lettering was stamped into the penny and not the normal raised text. Seems inverted. Sorry my photography sucks. My pictures don't really show quite the amount of detail i had hoped

What caused the damage also caused the lettering to look like this and it is post mint damage and not a clash of any type, or mint error.

Thanks for the input guys! Certainly makes cents. I figured it would probably be something related to the obvious wear of the coin. :agree:
