Hello, I bought this cheap french ecu but it has an indentation on the obverse right field. The indentation seems to be rather deep as it seems like there are traces of it on the other side (reverse right field, next to "e" in "nomen"). Is this some kind of damage or just a striking error? If it is damage then I'm wondering why it got a straight grade...
Thanks for showing it. I've had a debate with a dealer about slabbing a high EF 1893-CC eagle with a star struck on a planchet chip. He argues that it would get details and don't bother. Your coin's planchet flaw argues otherwise, and I should get mine slabbed anyway.
