Maybe - I've never used that method.

I typically hear voicecoil rub when an open low E string decays. The attack may sound fine but, if it gets fuzzy as the note dies, that's a rubbing voice coil.

Another method - provided one uses extreme care - is to gently and evenly (e.g. hands at noon and 6:00 or 9:00 and 3:00) push in on the cone and release. The cone should move in and out silently. Any scratching is either gunk build-up in the gap or a scraping voice coil.

...Hey! I played that song when it was new...
