many wierd effects. You occasionally encounter forms of doubling
that completely elude explanation. For example, there are "expansion
ripples" -- one or two sets of RAISED outlines paralleling central
design elements. I have three examples of that. I have one cent
struck through a shifted cap which features two raised versions of
TRUST offset in an entirely different direction from the normally
oriented incuse elements. I saw a cent struck through a very rotated
die cap that featured close, raised doubling of the date and LIBERTY
in adddition to the expected incuse design elements. I have a dime
struck through what I think was a struck clad layer which features a
mixture of incuse and raised design elements, all in their correct
positions relative to each other.
Kooky stuff, and endlessly fascinating.
