1982 1¢ - die scratches

 

1982 1¢ Lincoln with near concentric and irregular polygon die scratches on both the obverse and reverse dies. The irregular nature and the fact they are on both die faces suggests something other than a lathing operation for the lines origin - most likely an atypical die polishing that seems to have been occurring around 1982-83.
