    I have a question. On the reverse of this cent there are what I believe to be plating blisters all over. Question is why do they not effect the monument or letters. IMG_20190321_215444.jpg IMG_20190321_215338.jpg IMG_20190321_201300.jpg IMG_20190321_201158.jpg IMG_20190321_201048.jpg

    They may instead be Die Scrapes.
    That is a different issue apart from Linear Plating Blisters. The Obverse die is scratched somehow on the flat field not affecting the incused image during the minting proccess. So when the die strikes the planchet the monument looks normal and the scratches would appear raised but would not affect the image that was struck.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.
