I bought a coin that was Obv. Wheel Marked... From what i understand it looks like what that area looks like... but i am not expert.
This was what i read what i got the coin... https://www.ngccoin.com/news/article/4412/Wheel-Marks/
Crack it out and resubmit!
My best guess is close to the rim within the blue circled area:
Plot twist: the entire coin is just one large wheel mark.
Between the two red ( ) is what I see as most likely.
All aside with this coin being given the wheel mark ....sentence....I'll tell you what's worse....those carbon spots on the reverse! All joking aside the 1936 s /s are known for them.....and what's worse is sometimes they don't surface until in plastic.
If home I post one of mine that got the spots about a year after grading. It's a nice coin too! I pass on so many nice buffalos if I see a pin head of a spot..your specimen is loaded on the rev.. the buyer will hate you, and it's not your fault ,but it will get worse.....with time. My suggetion sell it cheap with an explanation of its issues.
And move on when I get home I'll email you a image of mine it was spot free when graded....now it looks like a Dalmatian variety.
In my novice opinion, after reading the NGC link, I would think that this would be more of a ‘circulation’ issue, making it AU, opposed to a ‘details’ coin, but that is just my opinion. To me, ‘details’ gives a connotation of wrong doing, not something done by a counting machine...especially something as minute as this.
PCGS details wheel mark coins as well.
Hey, can you email me Pic too? Would love to see that before I start buying this series, really.
From the photo, all I can guess is that the brow/forehead took some damage.
