Hi guys, very new to the error coin thing...I seen these while noodling and they didn't really look right to me. Could someone please tell me if they are PMD or legitimate errors? Thanks!

there are two "scrapes" near the last I that I had never seen before



The "lip" of the coin around the outside seems uneven

The 2002 seems quite off centre. I would think most things indented on a coin such as scrapes and scratches are PMD.

The scrapes are likely rolling machine marks. These occur on the ends of security rolls.

The 2nd coin looks a little off centre, barely though, how is the edge milling? Can you photograph that edge? Just trying to rule out a partial collar strike.

Ditto for what pph says re the second coin too.

I agree with the previous posts. The scratches are from a coin rolling machine and the second may be slightly off centre but not really that uncommon or of great value. A side on view of the coin will confirm if it's something different!

If the other side of the 2002 is off center in the same direction, you have a slightly off center coin. Otherwise, it's a MAD error.
