Anyone Recognize This?

Post by LateDateMorganGuy » Sat Jan 18, 2020 3:25 am

Since Leroy is on hiatus and I can't send this to him right now, I thought I would ask if anyone recognizes the two reverse die markers. It is a late date Morgan, but to dissuade the Out-Leroy temptation, I can't divulge the date and/or mint. It is a grade rarity Morgan. This example is in PCGS AU58 plastic. There is an EDS without the gouge and pitting, and a MDS with the gouge but no pitting.

I've never seen one before, but it's neat (a massive clash?) and I'd like to know more.
When in doubt... don't.

No clash on this coin. It is kinda neat. More to come when Leroy is back in business.

"Balance Beam" isn't bad. How about "Diving Board"? The gouge is about 5/32" long if I measured it correctly. Won't match the 03-O V22 gouge length apparently.
