I came across this penny while hunting rolls, and the marking made on the penny are very strange. The indents look to be pressed and not scratched and the metal doesn't look pushed up. I'll let you decide.

I agree! It seems odd that there would be two struck through objects on the same coin. Plus both of them seem to be interrupted as there seems to be a central region with no damage to the field of the coin. I agree that there are no obvious signs of metal be smushed (as there would be if something was pressed into the surface of the metal).

Let's be specific: are these areas raised or incuse?

They are incuse on both sides.

It looks like a very clean press on both sides of the coin. On the obverse of the coin, the impression barely harms the edge of the coin, but the other side the edge is a little smushed. However, that is the only place where the metal is actually pushed up and the rest is just a smooth indent.

Definitely Post Mint Damage. You can see the pushed up metal. It did not come out of the Mint like this. Worth face value.

although I can certainly understand why you would ask.
