    error-ref. says this is usually caused by excess heat after minting. large raised bubbles from internal gases on both sides. hope this is a lam defect. will show it to my LCS today and contact MDia1 for his opinion. a little Pro-active & Jack will maybe heal Click image for larger version.

    I think it's been in a fire. I see them very often.
