Found this opening a roll of nickels in my register and immediately pulled it out. Noticed when customers slowed down and I took a closer look at it that it might have lamination at 11:00 as if Jefferson got slashed in the head by Freddy Kruger. I'm sure this is a minor lamination error though I always like y'all's opinion before I sort it and store it away. Thanks and HH.

@cf1997, finding old coins in change is always fun!

It is hard to tell from this pic if you have a lam on not (best practice is to shoot pics before tucking it away in a 2x2). I would suspect not though, and here is why: most lams cross over design features as they are a result of a planchet flaw that existed prior to striking. It would be very unusual for a lam to start and stop on the exact edge of TJ's forehead. More likely is damage.

Spence - what else might it be? Doesn't look like typical damage.

My bad, these are coins I had found from my job over the past few weeks and I generally slap them in 2x2s and stow them away and forgetting about them from being busy. But here is a better picture of the area in question.

Yes that is a much better pic!

This is still a bit of a head-scratcher for me and I'm looking forward to others weighing in with their opinions. I'm still in the damage camp, but absolutely willing to have my mind changed.

Speaking of head scratcher, yes the nickel is a head scratcher, no pun intended
