    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    While it may appear to be something under the date it cannot be 1835 because it can't occur in the minting or die making process. The mint does not stamp the date into each individual die. All working dies are made from working hubs, which already include the date. While you think you see a date, it really isn't one.

    Your coin is a struck on a zinc planchet with copper plating approx. 8 microns (0.0003 inches) thick. Defects like plating blisters/bubbles and zinc rot (corrosion) is common. Also, copper is a very reactive metal and subject to staining and tarnish.

    That's why members can say unequivocally, that you're seeing stray marks and/or damage. Nothing more.

    Edit to add: I missed the LOL on your last post. Sounds like you figured it out

    Wow, great word
    Apophenia is the tendency to perceive meaningful connections between unrelated things. The term was coined by psychiatrist Klaus Conrad in his 1958 publication on the beginning stages of schizophrenia. He defined it as "unmotivated seeing of connections [accompanied by] a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness".

    Humans have a tendency to need to view familiar objects correctly orientated, so viewing your photos just add to pareidolia.
