    any time you see arcs like that, immediately think coin rolling machine.
    They may go through letters/numbers and displace metal while doing it too. So it may also create additional damage other than the scrap. With manual ones one can create some pretty deep looking gouges.

    I see a lot of posts like this where the poster thinks that error/pmd is a crap shoot. If you learn the minting process, you can logically deduce whether or not what you see was done during the minting process.

    In this case, you see two gouges that dig into the metal and move the metal around. When a coin is struck, it is crushed down, so it should have no raised ridges from surface metal movement. Therefore, the gouges here must have happened after the coin was minted.

    Yep, PMD from a rolling or wrapping machine.
