Hi all, can anyone tell me if this is one badly rusted Die used or is it possibly contamination of the Silver?

If you're talking about the vertical band of stuff on Liberty's face, that's not a pitted die. That's damage to the coin.

Yes John, that's what I'm talking about. Looks like a bad case of acne, what would cause this? Thanks for your feedback,

Steve.
