Any ideas what is going on with the date on this Morgan dollar?
It looks like the metal under the 1887 is recessed and the second 8 looks funky.
I was checking vam world and I got a headache so I decided to post pictures to see what others think?
Not that uncommon. I think its a worn/polished die and since its an incuse design, appears to have a basining impact. Could be wrong.
It looks like die erosion.... Not uncommon as dies wear and are polished for extended use. Cheers, RickO
