I found this coin roll hunting through a circulated bankroll from a bank box of U.S. Pennies. It has a very unusual Lamination error by the rim as well. I will call Lincoln "Scarface" since he has Lamination cracks on his face. Lincoln looks like he got cut up!

That was a way too close shave. Nice find.

@E&V, just trying to learn--is it possible that the extra metal next to the date is actually a flattened rim cud rather than a lam? Probably not, but it just seems like a weird place for a lam (and a common place for a cud).

Spence, I looked flat on the surface and it wasn't a Cud. It's a Lamination, but in a weird spot. Moxking, that comment was too funny! Lincoln forgot to put shaving cream on his face.

@Spence a Lamination will always affect (touch, go to) at least one part of the rim on a coin. A cud occurs when the die breaks on the rim causing separation (for lack of a better word for it right now) and the extra metal to flow into that area of the broken die.That causes that area of the coin to be higher which is noticeable from the edge of the coin as well (sorry I don't think I am explaining this very well - I have been aways for a few months) I am sure the others here can explain it better than I can right now.

Hmm, didn't know that. Why would that be?

@Spence - Can't for the life of me remember the official definition or reason of this - except that it was one of the things I learned from coop (at least 99.9% sure it was coop).

This is something from the error-ref website
Quote:
It is generally believed that the flaking, peeling, and cracking is due to impurities in the alloy which causes metal to separate along horizontal planes of weakness.

Thank you Coinfrog. This Lamination is pretty dramatic.

Looks like the lamination at one time was across about 1/2 way across this coin. Also that there is a straight line where it happened on the head, it probably went across the field at one time.

Wow, coop. So that means the Lamination was bigger at some point? So circulation has moved the Lamination?
