I originally posted this in the Introduce yourself area. It was my first post. I was asked for better photos. I purchased a Chinese Digital Microscope from WISH for $15.00. I was able to get some very good photos with the Scope. Maybe now someone can identify exactly what is going on with this coin. I do want to make one thing clear, these marks are NOT residue, They are NOT embedded hair or other foreign items. These are cracks into the surface of the coin. If you look at the edge shots you can see the cracks extend deeply into the coins surface, and appear that you could actually pry the layers apart. Any ideas or other examples would be appreciated.
