I'm going to agree with the theory that this was caused by someone dripping acid on part of the coin. These pictures do not look like a strike through, but rather like a small amount of a corrosive liquid was placed on the surface.

It doesn't explain why the letters are still there if it was acid it would eat them up to Don't you think

Acid eats all the exposed metal at roughly the same rate, so I don't follow why you think the letters would be missing. Think of the acid as basically shrinking the coin where it touches it.

Okay, but if you think about it, you'll see that your argument doesn't make sense.

At first I thought this might have been a parking lot coin, then a planchet or strike-through error.

Then you posted this picture.

(Sorry in advance, I like to over explain things.... a lot. )






It definitely got splashed by something.

At the edges of the mark, whatever it was, slowly evaporated off the coin because of that cloudy color.

You can also see it on the back of the head. It looks like ripples in a puddle slowly leaving deeper marks as it dries, going towards the middle of the damage.

Swimming pool water with too much chlorine for example, would evaporate too fast to leave the deep marks on the coin, so it must have been something much stronger (possibly Nitric or HCl), or it would show a lot more environmental damage from sitting there for a very long time.

Even low PH "acid rain" could react in the same way eventually. There's plenty of ways to dissolve the metal in coins, lemon juice, vinegar, soda/pop, etc.



As for the letters being intact, they look pretty messed up also, like they've been melted a bit. An acid wouldn't go straight for the letters first thing and wipe them completely off the coin. It would slowly react to all of the metal that it was splashed on.

The lettering has a smaller surface so it would dry faster off the top and could take less damage that way. Plus gravity would pull the liquid off the sides to a lower, or more flat surface.

The acid would react to the individual atoms of the metal, which may have been slightly clumped together more in certain areas, or had microscopic air pockets and was able to get in there and dissolve away that part a little quicker.

It does look pretty neat though.
