Yes, post-strike damage. The coin didn't leave the striking chamber in that condition. We see similar cents on this forum two or three times each month.

Damaged either intentionally or accidentally.
Doesn't really matter how. Damage is damage.

this is a deliberate extreme act of vandalism on this coin. somebody took a grinder of some sort and destroyed the design elements - just like your other coin you posted.

deliberate damage, the obverse seems fine but based on the metal flow and damage to the higher points on the reverse I'd say sanded down with a machiene.

The coin was minted just fine THEN was damaged post mint. It could not, it did not leave the mint looking like this. We see a lot of damaged coins here on CCF, some intentionally damaged, others accidentally, but in the end, regardless how the damage was made, damage is damage. This is not a defective planchet, it's just post mint damage.

Please don't complicate things by showing us a second coin, we ask for one coin per thread. Your second coin, the Lincoln Memorial cent looks as if it has had solder splashed on it, so it too is post mint damage.

to the CCF.

Guys if that coin has been ground down, sanded down, etc etc, the weight of the coin should be less than 2.5 right

I'm just going to be bit skeptical here, can you post up that same coin (the one on the scale) again, this time show the entire scale and coin with the weight. (just to prove that you didn't add weight to the scale out of frame) then may be that second coin on the scale, just curious about the weight of that one too.

Testing for solder is easy. Just touch the tip of a soldering iron to the metal, once it is hot. It will melt pretty easy. Temp to melt solder is way lower than copper or zinc. If it melts, it's solder. If it does not melt then the mystery continues. Keep in mind that lead will cause the same effect and is also used in some solder. Lead can be dangerous to handle. Always wash your hands after handling anything that might be lead. Because this is a soft metal, a soft copper brush can cause those lines in the metal while not scratching the copper.

I suppose that solder was applied to this and then scratched down as hewart stated. For all we know the weighed coin has solder on one side and the other was sanded down to keep it at the 'ideal weight' of 2.5g
