This is the backside of a coil pair Scott #412. Obviously there is a hinge that I could soak off, but am wondering what the ribbing is that runs across both stamps. Upon closer inspection, it can be seen from the obverse also. And yes there is a slight thin off to the left on the far stamp. Amazing what a good Nikon macro lens will pick up. Thanks to all, Joel.

They appear to be gripper marks which occur when coil stamps are pulled through a dispensing/affixing device.

Would this deter from any value?

photo61guy...agree with Don 100%....as for deter in value....I would say slightly less, not all coils purchased thru a vending machine have gripper marks
