Mint error or man made?

Post by CanadaEh » Sun Jan 26, 2020 10:57 am

Found this 1996 toonie and realized the upper half of the bear image is concave. I've looked at it through 10× LED mag offer and cant find a scratch or any other marks around it. The area is very smooth. Is this a strike out or man made somehow?

It does lol. Or an elephant without it's trunk! If any of you know a good toonie collector I can send images to please send my way? I live is a very small community in Northern Ontario and have no access to anyone :( Thanks much in advance. I'm pretty sure it's a strike through due to grease or grit.
