    I can see the gr above WE on the obverse in the dark area at the bottom of the truncation. The g of fg is visible between the eagles left leg and tail feathers.

    I can see a small portion of it but it was caused by over polishing the Die at the Mint. Worth a few extra dollars.

    Welcome to CT @Joshua Tree. Often times when the dies are serviced to try and get as many strikes as they can out of them, they polish the surface too much and the results is missing details. The 1937 D Buffalo three legged buffalo nickel is a prime example.
