I know nothing of ' dryer coins' but that coins looks like someone was trying to make a ring out of it. When I was about 10 or 12 (whatever a fourth grader would be ) We had a class trip to a farm owned by a classmate's parents.

Long story short Her father made rings out of silver dimes and quarters using a spoon. The first step was to hit the edge of the coin to get the rim to roll over. It looked very simmilar to the rim on this cent.

Cannot say why someone would make a ring out of cent, though.

@Tryna, dryer coins also tend to have a rim similar to a spooned coin. The reason I think it wasn't spooned is because of the lack of detail. Plus like you said, a cent wouldn't make a good ring anyway.

@ wheatchaser Just the thought of the sound that coin would make going round and round makes me want to bite me own nose off.

VICK: just putting a coin in a household dryer won't simulate a " dryer coin". These things are usually generated in laundromats and industrial dryers, that continuously spin for hours, load after load, or the coin falls inside the machinery and stays there rolling around for weeks or months before the repair guy pulls the machine apart and notices the poor thing in there.

Also watch your use of terminology. "Mule" is not a synonym for "error" or "weird coin", even though some eBay sellers treat it that way. A "mule" is a specific kind of mint error where two different dies from two different coins are used to strike a coin. This would be a "mule" if Lincoln were on one side and, say, the reverse of a dime was on the other.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis

Man, I was thinking " am I nuts" staring at the coin trying to figure out why it would be a mule... Looking for missing cents, or something.
