    It may have been formed from a cut and shear burr on the planchet as the copper seems to lay over the top of the edge. It kind of looks like a lamination and probably feels like you could peel it off.

    Yes, I tried to scrape another just like it. Wasn't possible.

    It shouldn't scrape off with a fingernail or such. It is a stretched edge of a blank that is folded over onto the face of the planchet in the upsetting mill. Usually cause by a dull blanking dye that stretches the copper past the edge, just as the nickel is stretched over the copper in the blanking die.
