I have not had a chance to go to the MTPs but whatever VAM, a reverse attribute ought to include polished, buffed, or collapsed in the description.

In a previous thread posted by twohawks, it was written, "I also sent in a few reports on coins labeled as over polished dies. The true cause is the dies having an interior die collapsed and the outer shell stretching due to striking."
A couple of additional examples (HRES).
