Why does this coin look like it has a reeded edge? It is faint, but it goes all the way around the coin...

I'm not seeing much of a reeded edge. I'm waiting experts to chime in.

I see the parallel fine scratches youíre referring to. They appear to be fairly evenly spaced. Donít know if that could be from the mint process or not. Someone that knows a lot more than I will be along shortly.

Iím about to smack those grubby fingers all over the face of that coin! Donít do that! If we had said this was a 500 dollar error, it would now be a 100 dollar error if even that with your finger print on it.

Ok , he's a new member; cut him a little slack . He'll learn like we all did . Anyway about OP's coin there is not enough definition to be a reeded edge . But don't toss it just yet .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Iíll bet they are scrapes left behind when the planchet was punched out.

The cent collar never had reeds. If they were there, then it would not be a cent. Just circulation marks. Reeds are raised.

Possibly just wear. Wear on dies cause flowlines, flowlines on a collar would show as vertical lines.
