1921-P Dot coins

The origin and of the dots found on 1921 coins is still a mystery. They are present on coins from all three mints but are most prolific on 1921-P coins (see 1921-D Dots and 1921-S Dots). Opinions on the likely origin of the dots range from hardness tests on the die, to markers identifying a specific die. One theory challenged by several experts holds that they are the result of inferior die steel, with bubbles trapped in the steel, not made on purpose.
