      While on the subject of erroneous labeling by a grading company, what purpose does this description equate to?  All the 1992 Lincoln cents had the "wide AM", except the very few that had the 1993 reverse die struck on the 1992 obverse.

      Unfortunately, somebody plunked down $650 for this example of post-strike damage.

Clash marks should be confined to the field and the lowest parts of the design. It also appears that parts of incuse AMERICA are located on the obverse design rim. That's also incompatible with a genuine clash.

      Egads. Next thing you know they ll be labeling 1969 cents as having the small head variety.
