    1983P-LC--Hard clash

    Additional Information
    Date: 1983

    This must have been a heck of a clash. Think this is the first one that I have seen the memorial bays on the recessed part of the die. Looks like the mint abraded poor Lincoln's lower jaw, beard and part of his neck and still couldn't get it all out.

    Nice find... Those dies must have really been convex to get that deep and leave no letters near the rims!!!

    Congrats! That is still an awesome looking die clash and you're right, it was a very strong one for sure before the mint workers tried to remove it! Cool find!
