Welcome Eric.
Thanks for the images but they need to be clear so we can see them.
All we can see is verdis gris on the coin (the green oxidizing copper).
What makes you believe they are a die adjustment strike?

The gray that is showing is the zinc planchet that is under the copper plating, the coin has been damaged to reveal the zinc. So this is post mint damage and not a mint error.
