i hugeeyes what looks like a "remnant" of the "ORIGINAL I" just to the left of what is there now.......in these pics

so, without a real clear pic here, i'm going with:
it was possibly 'pushed' over due to a "MECHANICAL ROLL CRIMPER" ... JMO

without seeing it first hand under 'my scope', i can only guess "USING THE IMAGES PROVIDED"

:eureka:
you will see/find a ton of LC's with this same 'damage' on the "date area"......JMO

I agree this was caused by the metal of the letter I being pushed against the B, and the metal doesn't come off it is displaced.
