Post both side of the coin, then zoom in on the area in question.
It's hard to get a good picture.. but you can kinda see the lines between the date and his chin. And also kinda on his shirt.. near the collar... but the lines are all over the coin. From too to bottom on both sides
And cent planchets are not made/produced at the mint. They have been outsourced since 1982
I agree. Most call them Linear Plating Blisters but I wonder why they don't call them draw roller marks. Didn't they used to call it that on non plated coins?
Wow.. I never knew cent planchets were not made at the mint.. so I'm guessing when they made the transition in 82 from copper to zinc they started producing them elsewhere? ... where habe they been producing them since then?
So.. it's totally normal? It's pretty much just something that happens during the process? But not to every single coin?
You are not interrupting anything. That's what Cointalk is for. Ask all the questions you want. Stop being sorry. Just make simple titles without the word sorry in them.
Yes the transition happened in 1982. They are produced by Jarden Zinc which at one point was associated with Ball Corp. Jarden zinc is located in Greene County TN.
@James.R these coin are made at the mint and there are transition time that the design or alloy is changed. The linear plating blister happen when the “metals” are mix and flatten to produce Planchets. I think like @Idhair said they where called roller marks but the new coins are plated.!
