Some interesting PMD on this coin. Maybe an etching acid since it left the devices and removed the fields (more dense/compressed)? Thought it was interesting.

I agree, definitely PMD. It looks more like something is stuck to the coin.

That last pic looks like a minor Class VI DDO, is that the same coin?

Could well be a foreign substance. Have you tried an acetone soak?

Yes interesting. My bet is on dried glue. Also, when you remove whatever it ends up being, expect the warm toning to be different under there.

Reminds me of glued aluminum foil? Note the color? Never seen that before.

Thanks for the comments, but it's not something on the coin. It is literally no coin surface there anymore. I'm not sure how they did it.

My quill jumps up when I reach the edge of the boundary. I can push the coin across the paper when I hit that edge very slowly.



Yes the front area is the same. Here is the WE area and the date. I hadn't looked for DDO, but something is going on there. Thanks for pointing it out. Course won't be worth anything with the damage.

The coating could have slowed the acid that ate that area of the coin. Their motto:

Thanks coop. Got it. I hadn't see one with the devices not eaten away while the rest was. Kind of cool, but I guess they didn't achieve the desired effect since its back in "circulation".
