Never cry WERECOIN!!

I know it's crazy.

The lines are raised over the letters.

There are multiple lines in die and stamp transfer both raised, and incuse. And one more raised below that.

I guess a hubbing test was considered at that time.

Struckthrough hub doubling?

We'll see...WHAT? What brought your attention...?

    In the early years of the copper plated zinc cents, the mint had a problem with the plating bubbling on the surfaces and not adhering properly to the base planchet.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    Most of that is plating bubbles....The 'mark' through the T & E looks like a planchet flaw. Cheers, RickO
