I would have thought it too except the imaging of the star is too perfect to have been scraped. Id imagine a contact mark would leave the area image distorted.

I dont know enough on the minting process for presidential dollars I have no clue if something like this is even possible. I would assume that when something comes in contact with a coin it probably wouldnt leave a mark looking this way. I would think that the image would be smeared or distorted not this clear showing multiple images of the star. The raised metal is the only real indication something may have Came in contact but whether it was when the star was being placed or after i have no clue..

This is probably one of the most difficult parts of a coin to photograph. Heres one more and this is probably the best I can do with the equipment I have.

The entire edge is struck at once so the entire edge would be effected, this was caused by the coin being gouged and is post mint damage.
