The only thing I think why the marks would be on the raised devises--would be that the marks were on the planchet, and there was a weak strike. I know this probably isn't right. It's just too much of a coincidence that the marks are on a coin from a die with lathe lines.
Sooooooo........ it must have something to do with the lathe lines ..........right?
Man, this is a good one Jason. I hope you will continue this investigation or attribution to completion.
Maybe Mike Diamond has seen this before?
Too tired to think right now.
