- Sep 7, 2005Unlikely. A blank working die has a cone-shaped face, not a flat face. Moreover, the blank working die would be wider than a finished die and wouldn't be able to generate a "design rim" of any kind.In a message dated 9/7/05 3:13:59 P.M. Central Daylight Time, Grimaldon@... writes:
Looking at the pic it looked to me like the blank had be struck by
blank "dies". Could a working die that was never impressed from a hub
make it into the press? I guess it would have to be a blank pair of
dies though. Maybe the to-be-hubbed dies got mixed in and you're not
looking at a planchet at all but a blank "coin"?
