'89 D not sure what this is called

#1 Unread post by GonzoOznog » Thu May 31, 2018 8:08 am

My question is about the texture of the coin. It appears rough and not shiny like normal pennies. Also there's some slight doubling above the word "states" on the back side. Your input is always greatly appreciated!

... texture = "plating bubbles"
... over states = this is a plating issue also, there is a slight "SEPARATION" of the surface plating that occurs during the strike when the 'die cavity' was filling, ... as the dies were compressing the planchet
