The smoothness is Post-mint damage . Possibly from ...or rubbing it on a rough surface .

Hi.. Just because a coin looks different, strange, weird or odd does not automatically mean it's a Mint Error. There are plenty of post mint damaged coins in circulation.
Yes you are wrong.. The edge is post mint damage.
It does not matter how it occurred.
of any kind or type.
sorry to be the bearer of bad news, along
@Erick5033. I don't see where anyone said it was a dryer coin. IMO it's "spooned".
@Fred Weinberg is a leading error coin expert and @paddyman98 has been collecting error coins for about 35 years. Both said it's damaged. If you disagree you're more than welcomed to take it somewhere else for other opinions. When you do, please let us know what they say about your coin. Most members are always open to learning something new. Peace, and stay safe.
@Erick5033 , Your very Welcome . If you need help with Pics, let us know . I wish we had the answers that your looking for but we answered with what we were presented with .
Make sure the person that you have evaluate the coin is knowledgeable of the minting process and has a background in errors and varieties. Error coins is a small subset of collecting and many dealers don’t specialize in them. Same with other specialties such as ancients, colonials, world coins, etc. Some dealers/collectors are very knowledgeable about some areas, while knowing only the basics of other areas.
The great thing about forums like this is that you can get a concentration of experience in most areas of collecting. The error section is an excellent way to get opinions from experts and the ancient section has some truly unbelievable experts offering advice and opinions. I noticed that you received a response from a world renowned expert on error coins. That's like having an MIT Physics professor helping you with your HS algebra homework
Good luck with your search and let us know what your contacts say.
