I found this.



It looks like it was badly made. Faded writing in the location of the vertical scores on the edge.
Is that common?

Doesn't look too bad for a coin that's been out in the world for 35 years.

Agree with nfine. Coins that have been in circulation for decades are exposed to all kinds of challenges--environmentally-caused degradation, hits and dings, circulation wear, maliciously-motivated people, etc., etc. Too, some characteristics of coin design can lead to unintended wear consequences. A classic example are the raised dates on Buffalo nickels.

That coin hasn't been in circulation for 35 years - it should have had a very brief circulation life as Mexico was suffering from pretty high inflation in the 1980's - the currency was redenominated in 1992 and thus this coin could would no longer be legal tender and circulating since then. What you're looking at here I suspect is a Grease Filled Die, obscuring some details. Add to the fact that this is a steel coin and is quite wear resistant.

@X2an Thanks that link was very informative. Am practicing getting quality images down under 300Kb which would have really shown the vertical scoring features as they are clearly caused by a damaged tool. Good forum. I have come across others that are off centre and one that should have the words KING WILL but instead looks like WIII.It's also upside down if I studied correctly. I will post it once I get the picture small enough.
