Hi everyone :) so this coin is toned very green in person (I know this is a common color, but it is the greenest one I've seen yet).

But the scratches/ marks on the REVERSE, make me think it's a type of error? How they do not obscure the coins design i.e. on the stem of the right wheat, through the N in "one."

Idk I'm new to seeing things this close with the scope, could be PMD that I'm not used to seeing! All input is appreciated thank you everyone :)

The marks could have been there originally but have since been worn down through time.

I agree with CoinHI. It could have been scratched 50 or 60 years ago and then returned to circulation. The high areas that are smooth now could have had the same marks, they've just worn down. The deepest scratches run through the lettering as well as the fields. Nothing in the minting process could have caused this type of damage.

Thank you everyone!! Ya, I wasnt sure because they were UNDER the design of the coin, I can see how wear could make it look like a defective planchet! Thanks again for the input! :)

Incuse marks on the coin, would mean the die would have to be having raised areas on the fields. The only way a raised mark would be on a die would be a crack. Just coin damage on the coin. (incuse marks on a coin is 99% of the time a coin issue, not a die issue) PSD is very common.
