PMD? I don't think so now

Post by DHalladay » Sat Mar 05, 2022 8:26 pm

My journey into 1921-D Land is turning into all kinds of interesting. The latest example is this still-unattributed coin that I will post later with more conventional attribution photos.

But right now I want to show a sequence of 5 photos of the P in PLURIBUS. When I first saw the big bump on the base, I assumed it was PMD. But after taking super-closeup photos I have changed my mind – especially because of the first few that sure seem to show a slight separation between the bottom of the P and the top of the big bump. Now my suspicion is the bump is half of a badly placed 'Dot', of which there are several throughout the 1921-D series.

These photos are in the order they were taken. The coin was never touched. The only differences are the light source was gradually moved from above the P to under the P.

Any thoughts or comments?

When in doubt... don't.

Looks like the right size to be one of those dots.

I wouldn't list something like this without confirmation from a second example

Agree. Preferably in higher grade.

It has good potential! I am tending towards it being "as struck".
