1896 T5 10 Cents Production Flaw

Postby rjd65 » Fri Aug 19, 2016 6:36 am

I've see this type of flaw on Victorian dimes now and then - mostly on the reverse side, as in the case pictured below. Seems as though it is a planchet flaw as the strike passes thru the rings. If anyone has some thoughts on what exactly causes this, I'd appreciate your insight. Please see images.

I think it is a mark left by parking meters.
