I think it may have been a blister at one time but has since been deflated leaving more copper on the west side but not having separation in the copper plating. I think getting this in Jim's hands will help solve the mystery. It would appear that has been other slight movement of the copper plating around this area too but I can't tell for sure.
    So you are saying it appears that Abe has passed the gas Sorry but I couldn't refuse a smart a%$ remark!!!

    Jon sent this coin to me for an in hand look... Thanks Jon... It is pretty cool looking... It is incuse... While it does look like the west side of a column and capital I believe it is a struck thru foreign object... The edges look crooked but are sharp when looking thru the loupe at 30x... The red arrow is what appears to be a die scratch/abrasion that I used for visual alignment in my overlay (last full rev pic)... The only column I was able to match closely with is C1... I did 3 close up pics with lite at slightly different angles!!!

    Another great job by Mr. Fines!! I can't thank you enough for your help and work on this! The pics and overlays are great and show it very well. Struck through it is. Thanks again Jim!
