Re: 1964 brockage nickel -- more photos

Since the entire coin is expanded only about 0.3 - 0.4mm, and this
expansion is largely or completely confined to the reverse face (it's
slightly wider than the obverse), this would mean that there was
essentially no expansion of the obverse face. This despite the fact
that it is well struck and struck completely out of the collar.
