Black iPhone bezel light streaking

On the top of the phone there is some lighter streaking/lines that are faint but noticeable if you look close. It would appear the coating is thinner there. While I'm not typically anal about these sorts of things I I've read about defective anodized coatings. Worth returning it as this is a sign of a easy scuffing in the future? I searched and couldn't find anyone with this type of issue.

Thoughts?

if you can return and exchange it, go for it.
i have some light minor black scuffs on the aluminum backing of mine which came out of the box. i'll be exchanging it.

now if it was something that developed over time after a few weeks i would probably just keep it.
