    the circled area's on the obverse looks like it could die gauges or something else this is why I want more pic's and closer if possible
    this could be also a die break in the circled spot's
    this could also be a Die clash

    I am NO expert on this coin

    2000 Canadian cents are made from copper plated steel. You can see the damaged plating peeling away from the date. It looks like it's suffered some type of environmental damage that has affected the plating

    i do see that on the date and agree with the above poster@oldhoopster! but the other spots look like they could be stains! can you tell if they are raised/incuse on the coin?
