What am I looking at?

Post by vamnuke » Sun Aug 22, 2021 1:44 pm

Please take a look at the vertical line thru the 'u' of Trust. Line is visible with naked eye and that nudged me to purchase. Shallow gouge of some type? Maybe planchet flaw? BTW coin is 'C' reverse 1878 V230-3 in PCGS 63PL plastic. Flaw is on the coin surface and not holder. I don't recall seeing that mark on other 230-3s, but will check the ones in the box next trip.

In doing some more looking, don’t see the mark on a past HA auction; one up for sale on the ‘bay in AU that looks like it has the same mark; will check the other 2 unc in the box next weekend. May be something I just never noticed.

I do not have said mark on my example (ANACS AU-50 Discovery PC).
