Thanks @paddyman98 I just posted a nearly identical coin below the original.
I don't know how to do that. But, the OP was a request for comments and possible explanations. The chips, laminations, etc. are almost continuous around the rim. So, enlarge the photos and look anywhere. Perhaps what you say "...a collar that isn't seated flush..." is part, or all, of the explanation.
I see the "excess metal," if you will, along the rim. I think that's just by virtue of the impact of the slightly-misaligned collar against the planchet. That pushed up some of the metal, in spots, and distorted the tops of some of the lettering. That excess metal isn't really chips, as nothing is chipped out. The distortions on the perimeter are due to the improperly-seated collar. That's how I'm seeing it. And your pictures are perfect.
Thanks for the help Eddie.
@Inspector43. Have a great weekend!
