I am a new collector and wanting to sell but not give it away. I don't find any others after online search. The obverse is roughed up - at first I thought it was a 1995.


Please let me know if this coin is rare or unique or just another garden variety error.

That's a scratch I think, since it's incuse. If so, then it's only worth face value.

The lighting is so harsh, I can't tell if it's raised or incuse. My hunch is incuse because it continues onto the eagle's beak. My vote is damage, no error.

Most likely just damage, but OP should advise if it's raised.

Here's more pics. Looks raised to me. See the material going wider as it borders the beak
