I busted this one out of its mint package for another variety but really liked this coin. What do you think?

They're not scratches. This side of the forum stinks. Been off of here for a while and know why. Have you guys ever seen a proof coin with a black spot or a blemish.

That's why you get two posts a day on here. IMO
Thanks anyway. I'll throw it away.

@ willburton , You really have a very bad attitude about certain CCF members . Those were perfectly reasonable calls on that Lincoln Cent , I was going to say the same thing ; That they were scratches , proof or not . If your under the assumption that all proof coins have to be of PF-70 quality then you are highly mistaken . John and Mark are beneficial with there calls on most coins on this forum .

@ willburton when posting if there are any flaws that are not on the coin I suggest noting them in the original post to avoid comments regarding them. looking at the coin my first thought was that they were on the coin and there is pretty much no way of knowing that unless the coin was in hand

the obverse looks CAM and the reverse is quite pretty if the colors in the photo are true. if the scratches noted on the obverse and reverse are in fact on the holder I'm in at PF68

That's a stunner! I think those tiny scratches are probably not hardly seen in hand.
