Finger print. When they are placed on a BU coin, they remain. Why? They react to the salts on your hands from sweat. They are there to stay until the prints turn the whole coin darker in color. So hold coins by the edges to prevent this from happening.

Fingerprint--this coin is a really nice example of why you shouldn't handle your uncirculated/proof coins with bare hands.
