    No. Those are just die scratches. Probably from polishing.

    Die scratches from cleaning, the obverse ring is from a worn die.

    If it was die scratches --shouldnt the whole coin be scratched not certain area only?

    Why the double or bubble on the rims?

    Nothing more than face and the educational value. This is common on copper/ zinc cents.

    Or as they say it's worth what anyone is willing to pay--but I keep one for my collection

    The guys are right , the mint workers have tried to restore a old overused die by polishing something off it . Feeder finger damage is much more pronounced than the die scratches and mostimes only go in one direction.

    Feeder finger rubs will often wear a smooth spot on the die that will leave a shiny spot on the coin.
