NUMISMATIC ITEMS THAT MIGHT BE CONFUSED WITH CHICHÉS

Last week Dick Hanscom pointed out an item the upcoming December 9th Stack's Coin Galleries sale, and noted that it did not meet Dick Johnson's criteria for being called a cliché. This week Dick Johnson adds this list of numismatic items that are often confused with chichés: -Editor

  • Any cast item with one or two sides -- not a cliché.
  • Die-struck uniface medal - may or may not be a cliché.
  • Die-struck uniface lead (or other soft metal) proof - is ocalled a cliché.
  • A splasher (always one-sided) - is called a cliché.

Die-striking with two thin blanks -- is a TRUE cliché.
