    Yes, I see woodgrain striations on the obverse. Neat find.

    Thank you guys! It's a first find for me. Even though it's kind of beat up, into a 2x2 it goes!

    Ive heard the term "woody" but dont know what it is. Is it from the planchet or polishing? Is it just 1941s that have this?

    They resemble wood grain. I believe from the metals not being mixed properly

    Thanks for the link. that helped! Thats makes it really recognizable compared to polishing or something else. more like swirled coffee cake or ice cream thats baked into the coin itself lol.
