Most likely die dents. Not uncommon on the memorial Cents. Exceptional photography!

Note. Is it raised? Then it was to be a die issue. (A void in the die created by a die dent/gouging) debris would leave a void on that area of the coin and leave an incuse mark when it fell off. So what do you think it is?

I agree with both of you. Just didn't know how to list it.
Looks pretty neat n heavy duty I thought.
So how does this happen?

Someone dropped a die onto another die. The hit slightly damaged the outside rim of the die. The mark was probably not even noticeable. But it shows up on the coin like a sore thumb under a microscope:

Thanks coop. As always you had the answer.
I've seen those on a lot of different years. Was curious about the ones like your last picture. That dent on mine is sure pretty bad. Lol guess those dies are slippery buggers.
