I received an order of 2022 Kennedy half dollar rolls (P&D) the other day. The P coins seemed a little different, but the D's are very different from what I am used to in an uncirculated coin directly from the mint. There are a LOT of scratches and what also looks to be die clashes, but I'm not sure.

I apologize that there are several coins shown in the pictures, but I felt it necessary to be able to show what I am seeing. They are all from the same roll. I have also included a photo of a 2014-D - the same coin from 8 years earlier (also unc. from US mint roll) to show how different they are.

My main focus is on Kennedy's head (obverse) as that is where most of the oddities are that I am seeing.

Any idea what I am looking at here? It seems obvious there has been a design change, but also a weak strike? Clashed dies? I)'m probably over-analyzing here, but look at how different his hair looks on the 2014.

Bag marks is what I see.
How many different halves did you post here? more than one for sure (not counting the 2014) hard to break out the different coins without identifiers.

Probably 4 or 5 coins from the roll. I will split out photos with ids for each. Thanks.

Looks like weakness. Not the affect areas are showing a slight rough texture? If feel there was some grease deep into this die, that prevented the full strike, thus the area you see is what the unchanged original surface on those affected area, and the lake of detail was prevented during the strike. Not a coin contact issue. Other wise the rest of the design would have been affected the same way by damage. This is not a damage issue.
