    I thought that's what it was when I first saw Sheila's pic but then pulled it up in the glossary and it seemed much different.

    Link (http://lincolncentforum.com/wp-conte...ent_IMAGES.jpg) I guess that example is just a much more extreme cap. As soon as I saw the pic of the 74 in error-ref though, there was little doubt.

    I definitely agree with a 'Struck Through Late Stage Die Cap'. I also threw away many when I was young and stupid and didn't know any better. Now that I am old and stupid...I don't make that mistake any more. This is one of my favorite errors and I now have abut a half dozen cents and a dime with this error. Rally nice find!

    Congrats Sheila for a very nice find! Nice job nailing this one Big Brother enamel! And kudo's to Jon for linking us to a great example on that 1974!

    Bob, we all know better... you are just being humble and a little bit funny when you pick on yourself! If we just had half of the knowledge you have... then we could say "I'm almost as smart as Bob!"

    Now... I confess... I have read about struck through die caps and there's a lot I don't understand. The only part I really get is, a coin gets stuck to one of the dies and strikes other coins until it falls off.

    It is usually the hammer die that the coin sticks too. This action will/can cause a cluster strike. (google cluster struck coin). When a coin gets stuck to the hammer die
    it will first imprint the reverse onto the next coin that it strikes, (early stage Capped Die) , The metal that is stuck onto the die will start to get thinner and thinner until you can see the design of the obverse again, but it will be quite blurry,( Mid stage Capped die) If allow to continue you will start to see design elements that are readable and look like a Normal" cent. The Die Press may have to be stopped to remove a Capped Die. All this happens at Three coin per Second. When the Dies get Dry a coin is able to Stick to the Die. One reason Struck Through Grease/Debris is so common.
