  • scratched planchet?

    I have several 2014 shield cent uncirculated fresh out the bank roll. The obverse of the coin has numerous scratches but the scratches seem to be on the planchet and face of abraham but do not appear on the dates or liberty. Could these coins have been made on scratched planchets and later processed into the cent?

    This is the normal streakiness seen on an unstruck planchet. A thin layer of lubricant in certain areas of the die face was enough to prevent the streaks from being erased by the strike.
