Hi everyone - I am brand new here and just started to coin roll hunt. Need some help to know is this really considered errors or not. I got this from a uncirculated bank roll in the beginning of March. Actually I have several dimes with the same problems. In the full obv-picture you can also see marks on the neck and a brushed look across the front, a die mark at the bridge of the nose and mark on his cheek. I am sitting here scratching my own head trying to figure this out so decided to come to a community that might help. Thank you

First coin is showing some flowlines (radial lines through LIBERTY) some die polish lines (lines from nose toward BE and from back of neck) and planchet striation lines (those lines running all the way across the coin from 1:00 to 7:00)

On the first three images, I'm leaning more towards rolling lines on those areas. They can't be die polishing lines as the deeper devices are not affected by die polishing. So polishing lines would only affect the fields. If the coin was cleaned with an abrasive, then the lines could be the same on the fields and the devices. But I'm still leaning towards rolling lines on those areas.

Thank you. I promise I did not polish them and I have more than 10 from different rolled that have the same markings.
Same as with the second obv coin image. Multiple coins with the same Little and Big cuds in the same spot but the "other" markings on each can be off just in another spot and a little different looking from each other. Weird.
Rolling lines- lets me know what caused that brushed look. Do you think that is what caused most of the markings just in different spots also? I appreciate your knowledge.. Much respect. Thank you.

Well rolling lines don't always go away after the strike. How do I know?

Note the circled area? You can see the pre-strike rolling lines on the planchet, and the struck (slightly still showing) on the struck area. That is how I know that is what they are.

Polishing of the dies, Zanner, not you polishing the coin. The mint polishes the die used to strike the coin in order to remove damage from things like clashes as the die ages. Sometimes they're a little aggressive or use a heavy grit and it leaves scratch marks all over the die that then get impressed into the surface of the coins struck with it. The thing you pointed to on the cheek just looks like a scrape, probably from the edge of another coin. Also, none of these are cuds, as cuds are what happens when a piece of the die breaks off on the rim. These are die chips. Looks like there's also a little booger chip on the edge of Frank's nostril. None of these are worth any premium on the coin unless they're a lot more severe, but they are fun to find!

All this information from the answers into what is going on with these coins is a wealth of knowledge. I want to say thank you to all that welcomed me to the community and to the ones that took the time to explain to this little newby. I got some more reading to do to try to understand more about the process in making coins. Again Thank you!
