@reds, that is 100% damage. Someone has sanded off the highest features of this cent and exposed the zinc core. This one is a spender.

PMD. The surface has been ground down.
That can't happen during the striking of the coin.

Best tp start a new thread for a different coin so replies don't get mixed up. First coin shows deliberate damaged as noted.

First coin a sanded down CENT, second coin - well, please only ONE coin per topic to avoid confusions as to which one is being answered. Now, I'll go over the to new thread for the second coin.
