Have you ever seen this before? Look at what appears to be 49 inside the O In One. Have you ever seen this before? Please no smart or Facetious comments. I’m still very green and am learning with everything I can find, including comments. Thank you thank you thank you.

    Your link won’t work for me. Can you post the picture here directly? That would be easier for everyone.

    Link doesn't work for me either.
    The OP may be having a hard time with photos because they are not an approved member.
    Looks like they joined March 25, 2022 and is still not approved.
    Maybe @PCGS_Moderator can approve them.

    You are now an approved member. :)

    We have all done so. At least most of us.

    @ERingus... We can see the anomalies you see.... and it seems you are starting to recognize that they are NOT what they 'appear' to be (i.e. numbers, letters), but either damage, tarnish or stains. Glad to see you making progress - you are where we all were at one time. Cheers, RickO

    I don’t know what else to do about reaching out to a moderator. I’ve tried and have not had any success. I e not been disrespectful or had any reason to not be approved. What else do you suggest I do?

    I see what you are talking about with the little 49, the 4 is smaller than the 9.
    It's just PMD and/or toning.
    The mint doesn't hide little numbers or other hidden messages on coins. ;)

    I see an S mintmark inside the C. I see it's time for another drink.

    @ifthevamzarockin i have since gone back to see if I can see that exact image again and I can not. I’m sorry to even waste anyones time but as time goes on I will learn more. I have gone back to the beginning and gone through what I thought we something and have eliminated more then half, lol. I will find some that are worth showing and share. Oh oh, I do have a cool one. I can share a photo now instead of a link!

    @jesbroken you called that one exactly. Vivid imagination I guess or beginners hope. I’m going to get better I promise
