    You're correct. The 85Did has either a plating blister/bubble or the start of zinc corrosion underneath the plating.

    Thanks. I've been just thowing them aside over the years and looking to confirm my findings before I send to be slabbed.

    Die cracks on the OP coin. Looks like one on the left of the monument base, as well. That die looks like it had a lot of use.

    The 2014 is also a die crack

    Thanks got to say placement is everything as far as looks go LOL

    Sure this is plating bubble but less is more in this case
