Hello , I am a new member here and also to coin searching , I have taken to looking at coins since I am semi retired now and found a couple of interesting coins in the ol coin jar , I have read a few things on coins and also watched a few videos on the minting process but have not run across this on a coin other than the diamond patterns running across Jefferson face which I believe to be from mint intended not to be put in circulation its pretty mess up , on front are the diamond patterns across and then bottom left ( bottom of collar ) are 3 numbers and running up the right it looks like track marks ? and on back see for your self is this post mint damage ? I would like to thank anyone ahead of time if you could make heads or tails of this coin ( pun intended:).

This is damage.
The diamonds are from having been put in a vise.

I'm going to say it's ALL Post Mint Damage here.
