Die Gouge


Recommended Posts

Die Gouge - A nick or cut in the surface of the die - appears as a raised straight line, dot, or bump on the coin. Die gouges can be caused by mint employees cleaning the working die from clogs with tools and making contact with the die surface hard enough to leave a mark. Die gouges are most commonly seen in the fields.
