Damage - likely from the reeded edge of another coin.

Appear to be reeding divots--post strike damage. Large and sharp images of the obverse and reverse would be very welcome. Thanks.

Something damaged the die. If you look at the devices you can see they are starting to spread in width. This is showing die ware and at that point anything can happen.

Something damaged the die

I don't think so. This coin is damaged. The die that created the coin did not have that anomaly.

The difference between die damage and coin damage?
1. On die damage, there would be an incuse mark on the die. This transfers to the coin as a raised area on the coin.



2. Damage on a coin will be incuse on the coin. To if the marks are incuse (damage into the surface of the coin) it is not a die issue, but damage to the coin. We often see incuse marks of damage on coins:

Assuming these are incuse, then reeding divots seems the logical answer.

@gra, first welcome to CCF. Second, can you please confirm that these marks are raised above the coin field? Thx.

Thanks for the good quality pictures.

Very far from unique, unfortunately.
If fact, it is arguably the most common single form of coin damage.
It is the result of freshly minted coins, after ejection from the coining press
dropping through some height onto a pile of other freshly minted coins.

It can be rightly considered that it is damage sustained during the minting process. However, this sort of damage is is not regarded as an error by most collectors.

I would like to know if the marks are raised or incuse. That makes a big difference to post mint damage or something like die chips.

Yes raised above surface same material, height as strike is part of the coin like 3 brail dots. I just know of no die used on coin to make it. The coin is actually in nice condition.

I'm going out on a limb here but I believe these 'lumps' of additional metal are possibly some type of silver solder. This coin looks nice and it could have been in a jewelry shop at one point as a candidate for placement in a bezel or something of the sort and inadvertently had solder drop onto it. I don't think it ever made it into bezel or there would be damage to the edge and/or rim. There appears to be circles of discoloration around each one of the lumps on the field of the coin. This, IMHO, would be consistent with hot molten solder dripping on the fields of this coin and sticking and causing the discoloration. I would just about bet that with enough force you could pick or push these little lumps off of the surface of the coin. That is if they aren't die chips, but they just don't look to me to fit the part for your normal die chip. Just my take here......

Please, no screen shots of your computer. Pics too small to see much detail and too pixilated if you blew them up. From what I see, looks like post mint damage ( PMD).
