    Could someone let me know what caused the extra metal on the rim in that one area. Would you say the grade could be VF? THX Ed

    This is just a guess, but could it be the result of a misaligned die? Are Belgian coins struck in "medal turn"? Does anyone know?

    Looks like a VF die crack.

    I thought about a die crack but never seen one follow a rim. Interesting. THX

    It looks like an alignment line that was engraved too deep to be removed by polishing the die. Would occur on all coins struck from this die.

    Haha not a rim burr!
    This appears to be just die wear/damage imo.
