    Yes, I was just wondering if somehow the strike on the obverse created ridges on the reverse -- There is a name for that, but it escapes me now.

    I haven't said anything on this thread because I wanted to see how it went. There really is nothing there except some abrasion lines. You really have to understand how coins are struck to understand why most of this conversation is off the mark. If a coin is double struck, full elements are visible, not just outlines. The 'ghosting' you mention is really nothing either. Although in nice condition, this coin is circulated, and as such bears markings and wear from over 100 years ago. I think Enamel7 had it right from the beginning:

    Nothing there. Just a case of pareidola.

    You might be thinking of "Progressive Indirect Design Transfer" but that mostly makes the ghost image (like the bust outline showing on a reverse). It's another way that normal die wear shows over enough use.
