1899-O Very interesting coin! Need Help

Post by Rbrady88 » Tue Feb 09, 2021 1:58 pm

New to collecting and have these die Lines “x” coming out of nose and mouth. Looks super awesome but need to know if this is worth anything. All help is appreciated! Thanks

Welcome to VAM world and keep looking at those dollars.
Unfortunately these are cut marks, and not an error or variety.
often the crusher of hopes and dreams

Thanks for the welcome. Just curious how cut marks can be raised and attached to the stars? Aren’t cut marks like the ones on her face opposed to the raised lines connected to the stars to mouth and nose?

we see coins cut with pen knives frequently. it pushes the metal up and then it gets flattened down with circulation, leaving the appearance of a die gouge, or die break. i see them on indian cents too.
