@crazyb0, I am not familiar with this term "corrosion ridge". Is it just what it seems to be--a linear region where the surface of the coin is raised due to expansion from the corrosion products? I see that on your Korean coin, the ridge includes features from the original strike as it cuts through the inscription. Is this a key feature of this phenomenon?
