  2. "That is some heavy circ wear... I zoomed in best I could and the devices are just to worn out to tell if any DD is there... When looking at ONE notice how there appears to be separation lines however that is due to the metal being displace from the wear... Looks like it was on its way to being a dryer coin... From our Glossary -

    Dryer Coin: A coin that has been extremely damaged outside of the mint by being repeatedly hit, similar to what would happen to it if it tumbled around in a dryer or similar device. In an actual dryer, the heat would soften the metal increasing the damage.
    Hope that helps!!!"

    Something similar to a dryer coin but dryer coins are mostly deformed on the rim from rolling in a dryer or machine. This is similar but my guess is a different kind of machine. They used to have a lot of one cent slot machines. I could imagine if this spent time at a casino you might get that effect, think of a coin in the tray then a stream of coins pelting it "jackpot" LOL
