I am sad to say it is the victim of PSD. You can tell that by the way the metal is pushed up and distorted the letter O in the word DOLLAR.

Yes that is a shame. Is there any sort of corresponding mark on the other side at this location?

In a shallow PMD edge scrape like this, no obverse impact would be expected.

PMD and PSD?


Post-mint damage vs. post-strike damage

Theoretically, you could classify damage that occurs after the coin is struck, but before it leaves the mint building as PSD but not as PMD. I use them interchangeably.

Very interesting on the PMD vs. PSD. So for PSD, that's damage to a coin before it leaves the mint, but after it's been struck. Do collectors place a higher value on PSD vs. PMD? Or are neither preferred? Thx!

No, but close. PSD also includes damage that occurs after it leaves the mint, so I suppose that PMD is a subset of PSD. Again, it is all damage and in general hurts the numismatic value.
