Re: Interesting piece of embedded metal
- The diffuse character of the "silver" makes it likely that it is
indeed an intrinsic part of the planchet, rather than a rolled-in or
struck-in error. Judging from the light/dark boundary in the copper
area below, it would seem that the coin is also afflicted with a
conventional improper alloy mix error.
These view of mine are tentative pending an up-close examination. If
you'd like, I'd be happy to inspect it for you.
