Hey all. Got this the other day. This coin shows very few marks in the fields or devices. The only thing that concerns me is what appears to be die file lines across both sides. How much does this affect grade? Thanks in advance. The image optimizer has distorted the lines in my pics. These lines do run parallel though. From 7-8 to 1-2 o clock on the obverse and from 4-5 to 10-11 on reverse.
The lines you see are often referred to as roller wheel marks form the draw bench that flattened silver ingots into strips the correct thickness for dollar planchets. Some imparted grooves that were too deep to clean up during the minting process.
strike is about average for an 83(O). the reverse is a little on the tip of the left wing and some of the higher profile leaves. possibly broken luster across the cheek and a couple other surface areas but could from lighting. MS64+
