  2. "To me, it looks like the coolest strategically placed linear plating blister I've ever seen. Notice the other round bumps on the plating, those are plating blisters. By the one, the blister is in a line formation.


    Blistered Plating (also called plating bubbles): Gas bubbles that form under the copper plating on copper-plated zinc planchets. Gasses or contaminants that get trapped under the plating expand from the resulting heat and pressure during the strike, causing the plating to push up. These bubbles can vary widely in scope and appearance ranging from small scattered bumps to large elongated or “linear” blisters."

    Thinking the same thing here. Lots of bubbles all over the obverse.

    It definitely has the cool factor going for it but these types of plating disturbances generally do not demand a premium. Nice one to have as an example in your collection though!
