At first I thought it was post mint damage. Then I noticed that the "E" in ONE wasn't abnormally deformed. Thought I'd ask the experts here.

Could we see full, large and sharp pics of the obverse and reverse--the full coin? Thanks.

I thought about the pliers issue also, but not the edge metal is not distorted. It looks like its affected on the opposite sides of the coin? An image of the edge of the coin might help us a bit more? If it shows the edge affected the same, it might be a planchet issue or a struck through issue.

I wish I could get you better pictures but I'm afraid those are the best I can do for now. I took those with my phone through two loops. My photography skills are more limited than my error knowledge.

The pictures I posted were the only ones I could get under the 300Kb limit on the board.

I appreciate the feedback though.

If you have a wooden cloths pin, you could put the unaffected area in it and how the coin vertical and take an image of the edge of the coin.

The edge is distorted slightly. Lincolns head appears to be sheared off horizontally and the missing parts of "In God We Trust" are faintly visible but distinct and not smeared. The Reverse appears to have two separate indentations. One deeper than the other. The "E" is in the shallower indentation. The relatively undamaged "E" is what is puzzling me. I considered pliers, vise or hammer damage but thought those things would do more damage to the lettering. While it is somewhat distorted the lines appear sharp.

I'm not trying to make a case for this coin. I just thought it was odd.

IT might a damaged coin or a lamination issue on the coin. So keep it safe for now until you can better images so I can see what it looks like. So keep it safe for now.

(My guess is a late 1970's coin) The weak design on the steps is my clue.

What Coop said. Definitely hold on to that bad boy for now. There is a great tutorial on here that show you exactly how to keep pics under 300. Don't know how to link it but it's called Pixlr under the tutorial section. It was so easy that even I could figure it out. Good luck!

I'll keep it safe... Much to the chagrin of #1 wife, I have become (always have been) obsessive compulsive about coinage (and lots of other items)... It'll be safe until I leave my Earthly burdens behind. Then she threatens a huge sale, for cheap...
