    1983 Dies Struck Foreign Object

    Something you don't see very often. The dies struck/clashed with a foreign object between them.

    Wow Jody that is so cool! A Lincoln UFO has been caught! Wonder what it could have been - it seems to look kind of round like a bar or half of a bar. Any way it could be part of a feeder finger that broke off?

    sorry that post above was a duplicate

    How do you know it was a foreign object? Could have been a domestic object which is more likely.

    Nice find... By the looks of the abrasions the mint attempted to lessen its visibility!!!
