    Found this in a roll, it’s in gem state and a gorgeous RB toning.

    noticed by the stalk it has a weird raised structure, almost a double stalk idk.
    Opinions?

    From your pictures it appears to be a die scratch.

    PMD scratch?

    never heard of die scratch before. But it’s strange because it is raised not indented but the top of the stalk, that section of raised-ness has lines in it like details. Idk

    Not PMD at all. The Die was scratched so it comes out on the coin. Ever hear of the high and low leaf varieties on the state quarters? A Mint employee scratched two dies and it created a variety.

    The anomaly on the reverse of your coin is cause by the feeder fingers hitting and wearing a mark onto the die. which in turn makes a raised mark on the coin. It can leave a shiny spot on the coin as it will make a very smooth spot on the die.

    No added value, but interesting and a good thing to be able to recognize on a coin.

    Nice looking coin. Try sending it to coin grading services such as PCGS for grading.

    Not worth it, the coin isn't gonna peg a ms 70 so its not a great value. Would cost more then its worth. It is a gorgeous cent though!
