Re: 1982 50 cent Large beads with damage

1982 50 cent Large beads with damage

Going through some coins today and came across this 1982, while checking for large or small beads I noticed that both sides have damage in the lower right area. Does anyone have an explanation for this?

Re: 2012 HMS Shannon Obverse

Thanks Troubadour

2012 HMS Shannon Obverse

Has any one else run into this? It looks to me like the plating has rubbed off and it is starting to rust.

1943 Tombac
