    Ole' Jeff got into a knife fight and lost. Those look scratches/gouges to the coin rather than a strike through.

    I agree that is a bag mark.

    Sometimes these are left over planchet defects that weren't removed when struck.

    This is just damage.

    The coin had a number of scratches, scrapes and gouges, however I'm leaning this scar on the eye to a planchet defect that was not removed when the coin was struck. The cut is above and below the eye, however the eyebrow itself shows no signs of PMD.

    It's nice in that respect but I do not believe this will carry a premium.

    It came from error-ref.com. look between the eye lid and the brow on my coin These are not scratches. The mark over the eye is not a scratch. Look closely between lid and brow that's embedded shavings. The pic is from error-ref.com. thanks! 52880801.jpg

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    The mark on the left has displaced metal on the sides, which is a characteristic of a PMD gouge/scratch. The mark on the right jumps over part of the eyelid where the contour changes. That is also a characteristic of a PMD scratch. A strike through would not have the displaced metal and would be continuous. Hope this helps

    Look between the left eyelid and brow. What is that? It looks embedded.

    As a note; the areas I pointed out are not incused. They are raised. I tested it under magnification and if they are raised and not incused it can't be scratches, gouges or dents. The right eye has an obvious scratch.

    Thanks. It's the only explanation that makes sense to me. If I hear otherwise I'm entitled to change my opinion. So far I haven't heard that. :)

    Both thoughts here could be correct. What we can or can't see is the question. The area looks smooth to me and therefore I called it contact.

    If the area in question looks raw and jagged un struck then it could be a planchet flaw.

    I also see what looks like displaced metal.

    Pictures are not 3 dimensional so a lot can be missed dependent upon which angle the coin is captured. Coin in hand is ideal. Thanks for the input.

    If taken with the right lighting they are three dimensional. You have the coin in hand. Does it look like a crevice or a shiny compressed area?

    I don't follow you. Does what look like a crevice?
