Hello all - I'm new here and this is my second post. Can you all help out with irregular lines through the background of a 1999 Penny? The closest thing I can liken it to is wood grain. Is this a plating issue or possible the die? I don't have to tell you guys but all the other pennies have a flat mirror finish, not this... What do you think? Thanks a lot!

Raised lines on a coin indicate that it could be die file lines to eliminate clash marks or burs, but there's also plating issues. So we need better images and at different angles. I don't know of any other way of helping.
