    I'm hoping for some feedback on this one. It looks like the upper half of the 2 is doubled above the 2. Any idea what could cause this?

    Looks like plating issues, IMO.

    The mystery deepens. I lightly swiped the surface with a microfiber cloth and guess what? The marks disappeared! I used very light pressure as you can see as the surface shows no scratches. Now I really wonder how that may have happened! My best guess is some grime covering the edges of the 2 was pushed up. Any thoughts?

    It may look that way but rest assured it's not.

    Definitely not a dropped element.
    I will say some kind of plating issue that caused Pareidolia.

    It would be good to show the entire Cent Obverse and Reverse.
