Wow that looks pretty dramatic. It is big for a pre-cud, but not sure what else it could be.

I'm gonna go out on the limb and say gouge. Looks like a furrow with pushed up metal in some areas.

Nice coin. Interesting. Attract me so I call my guy who is involved in production of dies (engendering).

Quote answer: " Funny we look for everything in mass production coins. He sad that if during re-polishing the die an scratch is done, then on electroplating copper plating will be accentuated due to the fact that this part had more zinc up so attract more ions. Way the dies are re-polish, because normally they work very well for 20 to 40k strike, then they re-polish again and third time and go for till max 100 to 120k strikes. Also told me that those dies are Iridium powder plated (second most harder element on the earth) for longevity of the die." end of his quote.

Also I will put here the photo which him send me back with his pointed things.




PS: Funny, my wife like this post because I have to cut some of my beers for 3 days due to the cost of long distance call. HiHiHi. (I will cut hers perfumes also)

Not a pre cud,IMHO. Scratch or struck through.

Any zinc visible? The field area looks like a cut to me.

It looks like a trench with metal raised on both sides, which could mean coin damage. The shape also doesn't look anything like a die crack on that area?

Thanks Coop for looking. It doesn't appear to have any zinc exposed and has a reflection from the camera lighting in the photograph that makes it appear that way. At the right side of the VDB letters near the rim, a break is visible to the midway point and then continues with a raised railroad track appearance then continues through to the rim again. At an angle the metal appears to be pushed up like a railroad track. I was unable to get a clear angled side photograph of the railroad type appearance. Interesting find view but I believe it doesn't appear to be a scratch or struck through.

8 h ago long time, sorry busy with some trades.

Thanks PerfectError for your post, I find very interesting and instructive, also thanks to COOP for his participation (always the master).

Like I say before me and my friend it is a scratch and it is before plating due to the missing evidences of zinc up. Not a variety but an MSD. Anyways, was a very nice and interesting topic which teach and challenge us nice. Thanks.
