Looks like pretty extensive damage on this one. In a few spots the damage is raised to the level of high points on the device. Other than the FFD it is in real good condition.

Most interesting.

That is extreme - and not often you see it on the Anvil die.
Sel, why do you think it is 'pre strike'? usually the fingers are struck by the die and gets damaged - then all following strikes should have the marks too.

Not planchet damage. If it was, the damage would be in the devices also. Has to be the most Feeder Finger Damage of all time.

There is no scratching to be seen on the steps.
The scratching in the area of the steps was obliterated by the strike.
The scratching that can be seen in this case is analogous to weight adjustment marks that can be seen on some large silver coins of late 17th century, only the reason for them is this case is quite different.

All the "raised" portions on the coin are "recessed" on the die.The damage is on the die not the planchet.

Sel 691, if as you say the scratches on the steps were obliterated by the strike, why would the scratches on the fields be any different? They both receive the same amount of pressure. The strike doesn't stop when it forms the stairs, it continues through the fields also.
