Obverse Wheel Marks

I had (2) Franklin  Halves graded by NGC and both came back with Obverse Wheel Marks. I would like to learn more about how to identify these as the coins have no value and should not be submitted for grading.  Any good tutorials available...? Any good methods for identifying Wheel Marks...? Anyone have a similar experience...?

My friend, there is a world of a difference between coins that have numismatic as opposed to 90% silver value.  Every Franklin half, regardless of date, grade or tire marks is worth many times over face.

If you can post a photo of one of the coins we may be able to point it out.   Wheel marks are a patch of hairlines, usually you need to rotate the coin under a light to find them but sometimes the are easily seen in a good close up photo.  If you google search for wheel marks on coins you should be able to find several images to learn from.
