    Looks like impact damage when it was hit by something.

    As mentioned, 'hit' or contact marks.

    Not an error of any kind or type - sorry

    However I'd still like a pic from a lower angle to see if the areas I'm questioning are raised or incuse.

    Thank goodness for this forum or a lot of newbies would be spending money sending in FV coins to a TPG. LOL

    as some of the more experienced guys mentioned, the coin has had something hit it or maybe the coin was dropped and hit something sharp. in your close up of the reverse at "URIBUS" to me its like something hit the coin going very fast and it swept through the UR and clipped the letter B and then again swept the letter S. not sure about the bottom of that S. good luck

    These things were banged around from the day they were made. The heavy bags were thrown around and stacked. Counting and rolling machines did all kinds of damage. When one of these machines would jam, they could really mess up a coin.

    Thanks for the better close up. The new pics prove it's PMD.
