Re: Double struck with two brockages!
- Now I have the coin and it's even better than advertised. In
addition everything else already mentioned, the coin has a small
indent or partial brockage on the reverse. The coin/planchet
intruded just slightly into the striking chamber so that all you've
got is a rim impression. Yet it distorted the coin quite visibly,
pushing it up in this area. The obverse bears some impressions near
this same area, but I cannot attribute them to letters, either die-
struck or brockaged.
So that's three struck coins plus another struck coin or planchet in
the striking chamber during the second strike. Exceedingly cool!
