- I managed to cross one item off my want list by winning this Teletrade offering:
It's a first-strike counterbrockage of the obverse design on the obverse face. I do believe I see some of IN GOD WE TRUST just inside the northern arc of the "wire rim".
I've only seen 3-4 other first-strike counterbrockages. Marc Bravstein has one.
Not all first-strike counterbrockages will appear like this. It requires the newly-formed, brockaged die cap to be struck within the collar (or at least within a partial collar). If it were to be struck out-of-collar, the incuse design on the working face of the newly-formed cap would expand laterally and curve upward. The first counterbrockage would then be much larger, with much more of the design running off the edge.
I'm still looking for a nice counterbrockage/clashed cap strike combo with a relatively even balance between brockage and counterbrockage design elements.
