So I got this 1954 PL nickel that looks like it was maybe minted with very late dies. cause on the coin is overall softer and the lettering has pitted look. the obverse has a bunch of odd white lines that I thought were just hairlines but they look raised and the look to erratic and uniform to be hairlines. and the reverse has 2 smaller strike trough's and has a couple of very large looking lines that span across the entire coin. idk whats up with the coin hoping you guys can tell em something.

The double lines across the reverse look like a classic Parking Meter Scratch, made by cranking the coin through an old-style mechanical parking meter.
