I picked this 39s Jefferson up to fill a hole in my Whitman. $4 plus a $1 shipping. With the naked eye, the sharp strike and shiny fields almost present as a proof - albeit a rough one. This is especially apparent next to other nickels in the book. Taking the close-up pictures for this post, however, show what is most likely just a harsh cleaning job. Figured I would post anyway for confirmation.

The other coin in the pic is a '39p

Thanks for your help!

Clear evidence of cleaning on the first coin.

Going to stick my neck out and say not cleaned . Would this be considered Die Striations on the 39-S ?

Clearer pics would help, but those parallel scratches that don't seem to get into the nooks and crannies of the letters make me think this coin was whizzed.

The light scratches on the tops of the devices are from cleaning. The lines on the last image are fading die scratches. [red]The difference?]/red] These die scratches only affect the fields. The flow behind the devices. On coin scratches they flow over the tops of the devices and the fields. So you actually have both. Coin scratches and die scratches.
