    It's been over five years and I still have not seen another report of this particular error. Mike Diamond published an excellent analysis of the coin on page 74 of the 14feb2011 issue of coin world...

    The two identical coins add significantly to the notion that the die caused the appearance and I concede that it is strong evidence. But from a logical, scientific position, even massive correlation...

    Well, as I said, the coins don't prove the theory, they only suggest it. The fact that we have coins that look like they could have been minted with ful depth clashed dies does not prove that was the...

    I will accept the opinion of the coin experts for now by ending my arguments but I remain unconvinced that deformities of such magnitude can happen dynamically and that rebound can be so complete. I...

    I originally thought that the die had impacted not the collar, but the top plate of the proof press (assuming that American proof presses are similar to Canadian ones, which I have seen pictures of),...

    What you are seeing are not the direct result of die clashes. Some other mechanism is involved. Perhaps Mike Diamond knows the cause of such results and can explain them, I cannot and won't try. If...

    No, I am saying that one die cannot reach into the devices off the opposite die during a clash event. The fields are the highest parts of the die and they hit each other during a clash. Clash marks...

    Amen to that! I have collected Morgan dollars for quite a few years now and the variety of clashes found in the series is astounding. I have had coins that clearly came from the same die pairing in...

    A few of the arrows in your images are not actually clash points. The arrows that point to devices as opposed to fields are not clash caused items. Clashes cannot reach into the devices on the...

    Mike, I don't believe a stencil is used with the modern lazer system. What this most likely is is a misalignment of the die in the lazer system or an offset error of the lazer itself (possibly caused...
