How are Die Clashes Formed?
I understand that when a planchet is not fed, depending on the spacing dies may clash. My question is since the devices are incuse/sunken, how can dies impart their design elements on each other even if the dies come into contact with great force. Wouldn't the dies end up being grossly warped and unusable if they resulted in clash marks?
I can understand die clashes in the case of $2.50/$5.00 Indians where the devices are convex on the dies, if there is a mismatch in denomination size, or if one die is badly cracked/broken and protrudes out.
I would appreciate it if someone could offer some insight, thanks!
