It wouldn't affect the weight a whole lot as only the
high parts have been removed.
The normal weight is 5.7g so it is a bit underweight.

Within tolerance still high parts removed or not the whole reverse rim is gone thats a considerable weight to remove from such a small mass. In any mater ill get to the bottom of it one way or another looks too funky for me to just accept PMD

If I were to make a real guess not half a...d I want to shoot for the moon and say it looks like a leveling strike to me not damage but I haven't seen a leveling strike in person but I have seen plenty of damage and I just want an explanation how it could be damage give me things to look for on the coin already looked for file lines and sanding marks and none are there there is no metal moved or anything the strike is just week it looks like

I'm more than open to re examine the coin further and look for signs of damage tell me what to look for. What clues could remain from the damage process? I know a good few and they aren't there give me another thing to check to affirm it is damage I'm open to learing something new in this process so that I know next time

There are hundreds of ways a coin can be damaged so unless you were there,
you might never know exactly what happened to it.
There are only certain things that can cause damage during the striking of
a coin so instead of trying to figure out what damaged it, ask yourself if
this is one of those certain things.
In this case the answer is no so the alternative is PMD.

Ok then why was I just able to whipe mint grease from the top of his eye to reveal a minor strike through if this was man handled and mangled wouldn't the grease have been black from collecting metal shavings I'm not saying it was a full out strike through more rather a die adjustment strike what things tell you it isn't? Not saying it was damaged during strike but rather struck weakly

That grease filled a strike through area yet was not filled with any metal dust or anything it was and slightly yellow so how was the entire coin worn that badly

This coin was struck 13 years ago. There is no way "mint grease" or anything else would still be on it. It's been sanded with fine sand paper, more on the reverse than the obverse.

Intentional damage. Sanded. How to tell? Note all the tops of the tallest devices are affected, the fields aren't. PSD. Spendable damaged coin.

No rims are the give-away for me. Post mint damage, and damage is damage however it's caused.
ça va bien aller

May have been someone's pocket piece. The only sure thing, is that it didn't happen at the mint.

Any chance you can provide a closeup image of the edge reeding?
