All,

Can anyone tell me what might cause these lines that run from NNE to SSW on the obverse only?

Thanks.

Bill

i do see some die scratches... but the lines I think he is talking about might be roller lines?

Die scratches don't happen on the higher points of the coin. The head is not affected by die polishing. These must be rolling lines on the planchet. Shows more on the obverse of the coin more than the reverse.

Thanks! Do either of those types of lines alter the grade one way or the other?

Richard, I'm looking forward to viewing your videos this week. Thanks!

Great enjoy them. They are broke into about 20 minute segments, X 5 so about 2 hours total.
They don't alter the grade. But I would not have it graded. Too much to spend on a possible MS-64 or 65.

IT would cost more to have it slabbed than you would ever get back from it. IMOHO
