CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

    I hope you do not take this doubt wrong (this is a forum for discussion). In your article you say that the grease mold only appears on the coins of 1995 ... 2000 on the obverse and can only be seen on the last digit. Looking at this coin it has the same characteristics of your article but on the reverse it is longer.

    in my opinion, it could be one of several issues... or a combination of several:

    A unusual wear pattern on the die. The reverse die could have been late die stage, cleaned up as evident from all the abrasion on the die.
    An abraded die - one which has had too much maintenance on it and it took away some of the letters. This coin might have had a clash, and they removed it.
    It also could be struck through grease or other debris in the letters.

    This is not an exact science. things happen.

    en mi opinión, podría ser uno de varios problemas... o una combinación de varios:

    Un patrón de desgaste inusual en el troquel. El troquel inverso podría haber sido una etapa tardía del troquel, limpiado como es evidente por toda la abrasión del troquel.
    Un troquel desgastado, al que se le ha dado demasiado mantenimiento y le ha quitado algunas letras. Esta moneda pudo haber tenido un choque y la retiraron.
    También podría golpearse a través de la grasa u otros residuos de las letras.

    Esta no es una ciencia exacta. las cosas pasan.

      Ariel, whose article are you referring to? as I would like to review it. Strike through grease can happen on any letter/number/ or device on either side of a coin, and even in the collar reeding. In my opinion your coin appears to be strike through grease.
