Poll Question
Would you keep coins with tiny circles on them?

Poll Choices
  Yes, I collect them as errors in their own right
  Only if I wanted the coins for some other reason
  No, they detract from how coins should look to me

These circles tend to be difficult to be find, especially ones with a complete circle. I'd keep it.

I have looked at tens of thousands of coins, and I probably have around five.

Is it a valuable coin? No
Is it an interesting and fun-to-find coin? Yes

Does anyone know what causes these circles? I believe Wexler has a similar penny with a circle around Lincoln inside the memorial that he classifies as a "UFO" variety along with some other oddball errors...

I had forgotten that Wexler had listed the 2004 penny as a UFO variety. The article I linked to says they don't have an explanation yet. I'm guessing Mike Diamond would probably know if anyone did. I hadn't been able to find anything more on them other than people find them every so often.

I voted for the second option. It's really too small for me to be interested in.

I have found these on cents, nickels and dimes (found this one today searching for 2016 DDRs). I posted the nickel here a few years back and the consensus was a lathe mark. These circles appear at the center area of the coin, which might suggest that the conical rod had a grove that wasn't removed during finishing or obliterated during die creation. Reading Wexler's notes on the 2004, there seems to be disagreement amongst the error/variety experts. It would be nice to know for sure what this type of phenomenon is attributed to. While this seems to occur often enough amongst a few denominations, I save them.
