odd stuff on this 1921-D

Post by DHalladay » Sat Jul 02, 2022 7:10 pm

It seems like half of the 1921-Ds I pick up these days are not shown in the die crack break and scribbles guides. Yesterday was a bad day, though; it was 2 out of 2. Any help would be most appreciated.


My first thought was pitting, but maybe it's gouges?

Several light polishing lines around the left wing tip:

Excellent scribbles, plus outside-the-leg scribbles and polishing lines all over the eagle's abdomen:

When in doubt... don't.

Send it. I can't find the scribbles in all of Leroy's photos.

Well Mighty Casey, your batting average is steady.
