Re: Business strikes or Specimen strikes

in 1908 it probably was struck only once, but with more pressure. It is believed that some year's specimen dies went on to make business strikes once they retired the specimen run. One of the main difference can be spotted in the fields. specimens often have parallel die buffing lines or mirror fields. MS usually have "flow lines" radially. Even a circulated specimen can still be recognized as such from the stronger strike or square rims or mirror field. this is why we sometimes see SP50 to 58 grades.
