Hi, everyone. Just got curious with this mint set showing milky spots and scratches all over the coin. So, I decided to break the set to see what is underneath. Thanks for sharing what you see on this coin. Apologies for the pics' poor quality.
Strong die scratches. They are on the fields. The fields are on the outside part of the die. The devices are deeper inside the die. So a die scratch, will leave a raised area on the fields that can flow behind the devices. The cello on the hold is probably doing more harm at this point. It is altering the surface of the coin.
