Is this a bad planchet or something else ??

I've seen some rough edged planchets before, just not one that goes all the way around the coin like this.

No, it is not a bad planchet. This is post mint damage. You can tell that because the damage is on top of the devices. If it was a bad planchet, the devices would be struck on top of the bad areas. That area where the damage is is common and is caused by the coin roller. But this is by far the worse damage I have ever seen. It is when the paper rolls are crimped I believe. This coin must have been a roll ender at some point in its life.

I've seen lots of roll machine damage and it would be more towards the center if a rolling machine did it.
Never seen a rolling machine damage so close to the edge like this.

I do agree with you, again just never seen it so close to the rim, which is why I asked.

thank you for your time.

It seems that the never rolling machines are causing the damage further out at least from what I have seen. That area is where the crimp is made. Maybe they redesigned the machine, I like you remember the damage from the rolling and crimping being in a bit more. It is possible something got hung up in the machine as it was crimping.

Interesting. I have never seen a coin look like this. I see split plating but this does look like design devouring die deterioration but to me that's a keeper example. I don't believe this is post mint either but possible that some of it is. Image is just not clear enough to be sure.

Interesting ......
I would like to see some better, closer, clearer images myself .....

JMO .... I do not see this as a coin crimping issue

Here are pictures getting closer and closer.

It seems weird to me that you only see the zinc where the letters are stamped but not where there are no letters. If a machine did this I think you would see the zinc core all the way around the coin as the copper coat would be scraped away.

Again I have no clue what to think about this. Think I will keep it regardless.

Thank-you again for the forum and your time.
