@ema, can you please confirm whether this ring/chicken is above or below the rest of the surface of the coin? I can't tell from your pics. Thx.

Ok good to know. I suppose that it could be a strike through of a small metal(?) fragment, but with this amount of circulation wear, I'd sooner believe that it is just a weird impact from something. At least from the pics, there doesn't appear to be flattening on the other side nor "smushing" up of any metal around this area, so it is hard to know for sure.

With the obverse pitted, I wonder if this was a parking lot coin sometime during its life?
