17744Re: Unusually strong upset produces distinctive weak strike
- Jul 5, 2007I received Travis' Pennsylvania quarter today, and I'm even more
impressed at its peculiar appearance. The boundary between the die-
struck periphery and featureless center is even more abrupt than it
appears in the photos. I would say there's a subtle but detectable
drop-off at this circular boundary line. The amount of upset that must
have been originally present on this coin would have been a remarkable
departure from the norm.
Now I have to decide whether to crack it out for additional study.
Travis says full speed ahead. I'll mull it over for a day.
