Hello. I recently purchased this 1965 Large Beads nickel. It has some unfortunate circular scratching on the obverse but it did allow me to obtain this variety with a bit less cost. What I am trying to determine is whether the jewel is attached or detached. I think it's attached but would really appreciate any thoughts from the community. The seller sold it as detached. Thank you.

Not real sure but I think it's not a large bead, the scratches look like vending machine or old parking meter marks

It's a large bead.

Looks attached to me; or at least partially attached

The bead count is 138. I was wondering the nature of the marks. Vending machine/parking meter, that could very well be.

The scratches on it are from a coin roller. If its pushed too hard onto the end roll crimper you get " the rings of death" as for the jewel, I have no idea so I wont even try to evaluate that.
