Looks like someone placed 2 cents between two boards and hit them with a hammer. Thus just the rim made contact with the obverse. PSD

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

I, for one, do not see any effect of the supposed 'damage' on the reverse of this coin. Could you point it out Coop?
Rest in Peace

If a sandwich job why didn't the "hit" go all the way around the obverse. I'm guessing a feeder problem. The rim has been scraped upwards.

I just see too small of a picture for me to make an assessment....

however...from what I can see...I could duplicate that with a metal pipe and a penny on a concrete floor

It looks like post-strike damage to me. The reverse face might have been cushioned by a relatively soft surface.
