Help with 1882 S Gouge in "D"

Post by demetri » Fri Aug 26, 2022 8:22 pm

Please pardon the pictures, I have NOT mastered getting good images but I'm working on it lol

I searched the 1882 S listing and cant find anything with a die gouge in the D of Dollar. I still have trouble seeing the doubling sometimes so I'm not sure since almost all of them say double something so I was wondering if I'm missing something on this coin. I'm guessing the gouge would be a die marker maybe but I cant find anything on this.

Any thoughts??

Looks like a struck thru error to me.

It kind of looks raised, is a strike thru raised or depressed. Geez Im struggling with Vams, strike thru errors I know NOTHING about. Are they common?

Ha, I actually thought of that at first but smartly decided against it lol

I cant tell if it is raised or sunken but if I were forced to pick one, I want to say raised. There is zero indication on out side of D, it is completely retained inside the D if that helps

Also the MM. when I look at it straight on, the top loop looks full, but if I look at it upside down, it looks empty. Almost like its on an angle or concave curve inside lower half of the loop.

Look sunken or recessed to me.

Struck-thru is unique and can be any shape, size, etc.
