And that, my friend, is pareidolia!

Very good point, and what a lot of the other members are talking about. I can see it, and I can see some of what appear to be letters in your original post. Now, is there any way you can explain how this could have happened at the mint? If it did not happen at the mint, it is considered either PMD (Post Minting Damage) or some anomaly that is really not worth anything because it is unique and, without sounding mean or anything, something no one else wants. Interesting though.
Isn't that a moderator?
Nice and thoughtful post. Even if no one else does, I appreciate it. Thank you.
Believe it or not, there's method to my madness; I promise!
Unfortunately, it's the other nut cases that are getting to me.
view - I will.
It's 'chatter' from something coming in contact with the
coin. There are no letters or designs, or anything at all
that could have occurred at the Mint.
As mentioned earlier, it's a classic case of pareidolia.
Or, as I say when folks show me similar coins at a coin
show, "What you see is an illusion - that's why people
think they see a picture of the Virgin Mary on a piece of
toast - because they want to".
Not trying to be difficult or rude - but wishing it or hoping
it doesn't 'make it'.
It's a good start - you noticed something different on your
coin, and you've learned that it's not what you might have
thought it would be. You'll know more the next time you find
a 'different' coin in change.
I've narrowed it down to two things:
1. A male coyote eating a Twinkie.
2. Bellman and Privy arm-wrestling in a phone booth, winner gets to insult ME, stacking, and my guarded outlook for this country. Inducements: no fear, no significance, no charge.

How'd I do?
Quite common phenomenon when viewing coins under magnification.
Or when REALLY stoned.
"Yes, I see it! Yes, I see it" lol
Man i tell ya some people in here. why call people names? Some of us can see some lettering on the jacket and some cant it could just be a coin press, but to call people names is really juvenile ya know.
But it isn't.
What would you call someone purporting to be 55 years old who refuses to learn about the minting process before making baseless claims?
And who might that be?
Separate names with a comma.
