I basically have a whole role of these and they were strange enough to post. It appears like the letters have shadowing. The pics were pretty hard to take due to the shiny finish. But I think you can see what I'm asking about. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

That reminds me of some of the plating issues we see on the Zincolns, but I rather wait for our experts to chime in.

I've seen those indents close to letters before. I think they were caused by excessive striking pressure. Just my opinion.

I can see why you asked, but I can't figure out how it would occur during the minting process. Maybe Coop will help us out.

Thanks Y'all. I honestly don't think they are rare or valuable,Because The entire roll looks like this. I would just like to identify the effect! Also I like to fly under the radar. Newbie is fine!

No clue on this one. It maybe that something was spilled onto the coin at one time?

This was a new unopened mint roll. Brand spanking new. So what damage occurred to these coins would have to have happened at the mint,Correct?

Unless it happened during the rolling process. Is it raised, or flat?

If it is flat, then it might be a stain or grease on the coin.

Definitely happened at the mint, I see these indentations a lot on nickels. When I see it toward one edge and not at the opposite edge, it makes me think the excessive pressure was caused by a tilted die. I think if you lightly tap a small pipe or metal tube in a piece of cardboard or clay the center forms a raised zero, (the indent around it represents the field), and if you tap it with excessive pressure and/or a tilt the zero still forms but has krinkles next to it. jmo

After thinking about it for awhile,This is what I came up with. The "shadowing" isn't really a dent or incuse very much at all. So I'm thinking it maybe a polishing of the die to remove trail dies. Thus would let the die move just enough to cause this "shadowing". Thoughts?

Maybe. They'd have to be raised on the coin if polished enough to remove trails on the die.
