1921- P strange and damaged liberty

Post by indian4 » Sat Oct 12, 2019 10:24 pm

Yep, another 1921. Well known for its' aberrations, here is another that I hope can be explained. LIBERTY has strange looking letters.

That is the way 21-P letters look to me.

Clearly I am not communicating well. I am wondering what could cause this kind of change in the lettering of liberty. Who knows, I might find this on another coin.

The “change” in the lettering, is not any change in lettering for the 1921s. That is how the lettering was made in the dies for stamping the 1921 dollars.
