If it's this shiny, it looks like it's been polished at some time.

The surfaces look polished and there is heavy damage to the obverse. It's showing a groove cut into the surface, most likely from the crimping jaws of a wrapping machine where this coin was on the end of the roll.

This is going to kill any premium value on this clashed die strike.

I too believe the obverse circular damage to be from a coin wrapping machine. It appears to have been gouged while rotating in a circular motion. IMO.

Sorry, this is most likely Wrapping Machine Damage or as it's sometimes called "The Circle of Death."

Feeder finger scrapes are straight lines on the dies, usually found on the fields, that look as if they are behind parts of the design. https://www.error-ref.com/feeder-ejector-scrapes/

I like that. Permanent damage to the coin. Just a spender when this happens.

You can post this coin on any forum you want. They are here around. You do not believe what we say, OK for me, each has theirs perceptions and imaginations. It is OK for me this. To has more explanations: your coin was re-polish, well circulate and the "spit" how you say is just a scratch.
