Can anyone tell me whether this 1951 cent actually has multiple strikes, or if the hub was just loose during the striking process?

When minting coins, the downward motion and pressure will cause the die to "jump" some, secondary hit it's called, this is normal machining. If the adjustments aren't tight, the secondary goes wider, sloppy looking, like this. Also can make a heck of a racket, press operator musta been on a break!

It is possible of a capped die to look this way but not both sides!

Thanks, Crazyb0! I've seen something similar on US coins, but as much on one coin and the strikes were much closer together.

This is definitely PMD. The surfaces have been altered somehow, e.g., with a wire wheel.

Looks like an acid coin. What's the weight?

Cheers, Bill
