    I won’t be surprised if nobody can see this and I’ve tried to mark the areas.

    Is it likely to be post mint damage or is it possible a planchette can be actually less than smooth?

    Yep, post mint damage. Probably placed in a kiln or some other device to make it look like that. :D

    I would go with PMD myself, mainly wear. The thicker areas of the coin ( bust) could act as the fulcrum effort. Maybe used in the age of penny parking meters, games, counting machines, etc. Jim

    Paddyman is correct if the rims are flat level~ it doesn't rock on a flat surface. My answer was because I thought you meant it wasn't flat and you could rock the coin when it was on a flat surface. Jim

    The reverse looks more like a ghost so Paddyman will get no argument from me. The obverse looks like PMD.

    After reading Paddyman's link on progressive indirect design transfer, I can see Lincoln's head faintly on the first photo posted, so I would agree with him.

    The rims are flat. I was expecting it to rock a bit but it doesn’t.
