Thank you.

    Guess from pics PMD from spooning/hammer etc. the rim. Been collecting two years now so fairly new but this looks like it to me. GL

    Absolutely PMD.

    It's either been spooned or a dryer coin that has been repeatedly tumbled. ALso add a little environmental damage. Regardless of what caused the rim to flatten and widen, it didn't leave the mint like that

    Definitely PMD....looks like the rim has been tapped with a spoon like we used to do to silver coins to make a ring. Cheers, RickO

    Understanding the minting process will help with coins like this.

    There is no way that coin could have been made that way.

    Lots of these edge smoothing coins lately. Maybe all these people visit the same laundromat?
