Re: 1943 tombac five cent.

"It is my opinion, such comes to be as a result of surface impurities (scale) that can form on a coin-blank (any metal) during manufacture... "

We've had examples of 2, 1943 50 cent coins posted on this site where progressive "mortar set" was evident. This would lead me to conclude that peeling of chrome plating on the die was the more likely cause.
