It is not an improper alloy."
Hopefully, you both will take the time to to explain the characteristics on the coin that others saw to form their opinion about its alloy.
Some of you are throwing around terms that you don't fully understand. There is ONLY one thing on that coin that is similar to a characteristic seen with roller marks! There are at least three things that are characteristic of alloy mix and NOT roller marks.
Hopefully, NO ONE WILL TELL YOU THE DIFFERENCE YET until you look at the OP's coin and DESCRIBE WHAT YOU SEE.
i have a 74 which i graded at ms-67..sorry no pics at moment, problem with computer..will post at later date..
i want to hazard an educated guess and say that because the lines are going the same way on both sides of the coin?? same direction , meaning???
also that the lines go through the devices on the coins, and not just the background...
and devices, with no mechanical disturbance visible at any of the device crossings, at least to my eye...
Edit: and that's one thing that I've learned from this thread: I didn't understand that "roller marks" refers to marks left when rolling out the stock from which blanks are punched. Now I know!
Better photos would help.
