Has the cud under the date formed yet?

I'm not sure if this helps qualify H-1 vs H-2. As I read, it is the BREAK THROUGH the denticle, and the cud is visually shown, but not part of the written description.

I think that maybe a new string may be in order to develop the thoughts about the Scarface H series, with respect to the fun seek and find from Dennis's original post.

The interests I find are the crack up through the denticle as opposed to along side, when the cud formed, through the rim of the coin, and the rim style (I have noticed the "round" rim and a "stepped" rim). I am also interested in the gradings as the link to the MS-64 looked really 62 to me, kinda really scratched and baggy.

Thank's to Dennis for starting this discussion, and hope to see more rabbit holes like this.

And careful Uncle Bingo that this series won't drive you crazy! Coins in the wild add up, but I consider those shameless, earned discoveries. And it keeps JB and JR in business!

Well if the GC listing looks like a 62 instead of a 64 . I may change my own guess on my 1B to ms 60 :lol: I'll play along in a new thread either you start it or I can latter , I am thinking my coin is like Harrison stage H 1.5 ,,, Micro Vamming at it's finest ! :lol: :lol:
