This 1921 Walking liberty half dollar has "scratch lines" which I've seen before. Apparently the grandfather of the seller picked this and an actual complete set of Walkers out of circulation. What caused these?

How would you grade this coin?

    Something sharp was dragged across the surface. How would we know more than that?
