See if this works.
your edge should be bright and shiny still if it is improperly annealed, the collar that adds the reeding wipes out the surface marks on the edge completely during the strike.
Now, the reality is, this is a "more likely than not" type thing here's a link to the thread on here from my find.
for me in the end it's a, "maybe, maybe not, but it left the mint that way".
Kind of easier to spot when the coin is brand new release minted vs. a couple years old and found in change.
There were two in the roll.
even then, it's not like a "home run" they usually sell slabbed for less than the costs to get it slabbed. but if you wanted it for your collection, I can understand paying the fees to get it slabbed with it on it.
the luster of the improper annealing error coin will typically be uninterrupted and flowing freely over the discolorations. Luster flow lines struck into annealed surfaces. in other words, the luster will still be there with the discoloration and when you turn it in the light it will still show the cartwheel behind the discolorations.
Corrosion or environmental damage will disfigure or destroy luster. you'll lose the cartwheel effect. luster will be interrupted.
but I'd say yes, it's a lightly mis-annealed
The reeding shows 'red' (the copper core), and
a plated item (or enviornmentally damaged surfaces)
wouldn't show the nice red copper core.
It doesn't have the 'copper wash' red color some have,
and it doesn't have that 'steel grey luster' that some
have, but I don't believe it's been played with.
Thank you Mr. Fred Weinberg for your expertise. Came straight from a new roll.
