It may not look like it but the coin is uncirculated, it's just my poor pictures.
I'm not sure does this look like a legitimate plating error?

Cheers, Bill

Do the coppery coloured portions appear so in hand, or is your second pic more representative of the true colour?

The second picture is closest to the actual colour.
The section in question is a different shade of bronze and shiny.
I did notice some of the Bronze coating seems to have migrated into the security section also.

Cheers, Bill

The ring and core are plated separately.
The two pieces are joined in the striking chamber,it is the force of the strike that creates the seam/lock joint that fixes the ring to the core.
The eroded area at 10 0'clock on your coin involves both the core and the ring, this cannot possibly happen before the strike.
Thus what we see is PMD, some sort of environmental damage.

If not for the difference in colour that would be most likely.
That's why I asked the OP about the colour, looks like we can see through the brass plating to the Al/bronze core.

Resurrecting this old thread as I have just now noticed there are fibres protruding for the medal in several spots they feel like a fine wire like perhaps steel wool.
Anyone with different thoughts or opinions after viewing this recent close-up picture?
How could the fibres get embedded into the medal?

I second numidan with drops of transparent lacquer. On dollars you can see the bubbles in the lacker or glue or... Should be able to remove it with Acetone.

Acetone bath has made no difference.

Hi Bill, bring it to the next Coin Expo and show Jaime, is the best I can say at this time.
