    That's strike doubling. You need to go on YouTube and see for yourself how these are minted. These aren't struck with cookie-cutter precision. Any rattling or instability in the collar when the planchet is struck is going to manifest at that extreme level of magnification, it's a cinch for it.

    My understanding is they finally removed copper from cents in 1982, so interesting to see how these pre-82 coins have a lot more metal related character than those afterwards.

    1973 is a prime number. The Egyptians and Babylonians considered prime numbers among the most sacred, and the fact it was minted in San Francisco must give the coin added uniqueness.

    What you are seeing is mechanical doubling, or "shelf doubling", which is characterized by flat, shelf-like doubling, hence the name. It can occur on almost any date/mintmark, and is not to be confused with a doubled die since it varies from coin to coin. I don't think it usually adds value, except maybe in extreme cases. That is the extent of my knowledge on this anomaly.

    You can tell those letters are nervously shaking and moving to the left as you are evading their privacy ;):p

    Seriously what are you using for those closeups some sort of phone camera attachment?

    You will probably never find out. Seems this guy only posts zoomed in pics of nonsense coins with imaginary numismatic terms and never responds to questions.

    These threads remind me a bit of my work in medical imaging.
    I used to sometimes say that if you look hard enough, and just keep looking, you’re eventually going to see something there. Sometimes it was something real, sometimes not. But, that’s another story entirely.
    Also, in my younger years, sometimes a little “altered” with my senses enhanced, I might spend hours gazing into tide pools, watching the incredible hidden and nearly microscopic communities of invertebrates and crustaceans. Super interesting stuff!
    These threads are bringing back some fond memories ;-)
