Hello, I am a new name here, but I've been visiting for years reading your threads to get answers to questions. I need help with this coin. There are too many things going on with it! I didn't sleep last night! Just staring at this coin..

I see die cracks, other marks that were made pre-strike on the reverse. And on the Obverse I see doubling, but I'm second guessing it.

I'm attaching pics of the most noticeable and prominent imperfections. I need fresh eyes. Please help.

to CCF! I'm no expert but what I see is PMD, Post mint damage. The two marks you're seeing on the right sleeve is from another coin that was was dropped and the corner landed on that spot. The mark on the hand is also also from a well placed hit. As for the line, you're seeing what appears to be recessed and a scratch. I think you have a spender. I'm by all means no expert but I've gained some valuable knowledge from some great minds on this site.

Thank you for your response. Maybe my pictures aren't that good, but the small lines with the date and Columbia are "under" the stamp. There are no scratches on. Top. Does that change anything?

Are the lines raised or recessed? By your pics they appear recessed. Also by the pics I cannot see where the lines go through on the lettering or the numbers.

What you are seeing on the letters is MD as incused devices do the opposite of raised devices incused devices get smaller on doubled dies while MD makes them bigger

Edit. Nevermind you weren't even talking about the doubling I see the lines now if they are raised maybe die gouges?
