I started going through my investigate later bin of coins. This one has me stumped. If I didn't know better I would swar it has a bad casting. I think I can feel the imperfections on it but the more I try, the more I think it's my imagination. What do you all think this is?

It looks like something may have spilled on it.
Whatever it is, it didn't happen when the coin was struck
so it is some sort of PMD.

It does almost look like waterspots, but I haven't come across this before.

But hey it finally got me to quit lurking and join, so there's that.

@shad, yes very glad to have you as an active participant. My vote is that these parches on the fields are reside from this coin being held down by scotch tape. Something was in contact with the surfaces for a long time and left behind this residue.

Also, remember that these coins are not cast, but rather struck.

A fun test would be to soak the coin in 100% acetone. Acetone will remove most dried adhesives, organic-based gunk, and other stuff.

Looks like clear glue on both sides.
btw, coins are struck (minted), not "cast".
