Another 1938 S Jefferson Nickel with a Strikethrough?

jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 9,303 ✭✭✭✭✭

This is the second 1938 S Jeff with an anomaly on the reverse right side steps. The first I posted turned out not to be a strikethrough. This appears to be a strikethrough and not a delamination or wear, as there would not be steps on the step edge. What do you think? I have placed a photo of the 1st 38S Jeff anomaly below. I do believe that both have the same die crack in the lower right portion of the anomaly. JMO

    Wow! That's pretty cool! In the same spot.

    Is this what you're referring to as the die crack?

    Yes, not sure it's a die crack, but seems both have it.

    Really interesting how you found those almost identical anomalies on two different coins. I don't think it would be a die issue. But they're the same dates and mint mark. Looks more like a planchet issue. Besides this anomaly, do you see any other duplicate die markers on both coins?

    I have not, as of yet. I think it will honestly just be a coincidence, but truly odd.

    I've found several small dollar coins over the last 8 or 9 months with the same exact die cracks on the reverse.

    Wow, that's wild. Unbelieveable that so many have shown up in one area.

    Probably just like the W quarters. Some guys get them all, some guys get none! I guess it's where the fed dumped them into circulation.
