    On the reverse there is a arc shaped mark that runs uninterrupted by design. Is this a hubbed-in debris error?

    It stood out to me, so I checked to see if it was normal. Knowing the type of error took research, and hubbed-in debris seemed more likely.

    isn't the lettering incused .. which would make a scratch more likely.

    No, the lettering is raised.

    A planchet flaw?

    The hubbed in debris coins I've seen and have, Appear to lay flat and run straight. I think I'm going with die scratch. Possibly from a screw driver or the like.

    I did read that a planchet defect can leave a arc shape on the struck coin. Not sure though.

    The letters and the state on which they rest, Minnesota, all appear to be raised without any problems. Yet a clear defined arcs occurs under these letters. Until someone can explain this I'm sticking with a planchet flaw. Any other explanation, such as a scratch, appear useless in nature. If it was a scratch more than one would be reported. Especially after this long, such as in the 2004 Wisconsin quarter with an extra high and low leaf varieties.

    I agree with planchet flaw(defect).

    Correct me if I'm wrong, But are you saying new varieties/errors can't be found once a coin has been in circulation for a few years. I would disagree with this. Case in point. I found this nickel just a couple years ago and haven't found another since on any forum or sale site. DSC05478.JPG

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Die scratch IMO. The raised letters are incuse on the die, so it would be easy for a scratch not to affect the letters. I don’t believe it is a planchet flaw because metal flow during striking would induce some irregularities in the shape of the flaw and I would expect some/most of the flaw to be visible on the letters.

    Not at all. That coin has been in circulation since 2004. Do you believe that it took 15 years for this variety to be found? I'm not even saying this is a variety, I'm just stating my reasons for believing it to be a planchet error and not a scratch. If it was a scratch more than one would have been found in the given time frame.

    Yes I do. Some coins have been found 20-30 years after circulation. I guess we will agree to disagree!
