Are the marks raised or recessed?

There would be no duplicate, it is damage probably intentional.
You can see raised metal in areas.

Bill I have a stereo binocular microscope arriving today. When I get it I’ll take mor pictures and post them. I am worried it’s a forgery but if not I’ll have to put a price on it or put it in an auction

Agree with coinguy, looks like damage from an electric engraver or some other device.
