I recently purchased this Jeff in a group purchase and upon photographing it inhand noticed this strikeover(?). It appears to be so to me and would appreciate your opinions. Obv/rev photo and enlargement below(which may be too large).
Thanks,
Jim

    You mean here? It almost looks like some type of lamination.

    Kind of looks like a piece of metal that shredded upon impact. JMO

    Don't do it but does it look like this piece of metal can or would peel up?
