    You're welcome enamel! I just know that you were here when I got here and you've always helped me and other people with questions. Then I saw where you posted you've been doing this for 20 years so that says a lot! I've always looked up to you, kind of like a big brother with answers! And yes, it's always great when Bob shows up and helps all of us get back on track!

I wasn't able to find that article but did come up with an article by Mike Diamond on 8/10/13 and it mentions SFT https://www.coinworld.com/news/us-co...eate-nove.html the images do not come up tho???
    Thank you very much Jim for digging around and finding this topic! It's very interesting, and I wish the photos on Coin World would show up. I did see the pics on error-ref.com and I'm having a hard time making a connection with Surface Film Transfer and my coin since there are no transfer of images on my coin and it doesn't appear to be broadstruck or off-center (which shows the darker highly reflective circular area) This is really cool information though!

    I think you were linking at the items that transfer designs... The SFT does not transfer any design just a film... There are a couple of posts somewhere on the forum with SFT... Just have to find them... The SFT reference on Error Ref http://www.error-ref.com/wastebasket...te_catagories/ is 2nd below the Greasy Ghost ref... I think a PM to Mike Diamond will be in order to find out about the articles!!!

    You're welcome Jim! When I read things on error-ref.com, I feel like I need to go back to college! So... most of the time I am not sure if I am comprehending. No worries, sometimes being out in left field with one thing helps us down the road with another thing
