I remember seeing this coin, probably on eBay.
My opinion from the photos is that this coin came in contact with something corrosive.

I just purchased this 1868 Shield Nickel. It is high grade and deeply toned, but has one spot on the obverse and two on the reverse where the surfaces are bright and rough. I'm looking on opinions on what happened to this coin. Is is a defective planchet, a coin with corrosion, damaged in some way . . . or??? There are minor encrustations on both sides.
Thanks for any help!
