@Mommyfelix, it looks to me like another coin has been pressed against this one, leaving a partial impression on this side of the cent. Can you please post a pic of the other side of your coin too? Thx.

This isn't an error coin. This is Post Strike Damage (Happened after it came out of the U.S. Mint). dryer coin.

Although it is probably damaged, an unusual find!

Wow. That one has been through H. E. Double hockey sticks in its short life. It’s definitely PMD. The reverse looks as if someone went after it with a Dremel tool.

Sorry for quibbling @chafemasterj , but I'm thinking that a dremel would have exposed the zinc core. This is why I was thinking that something was hammered or pressed into the surface of the OP's coin.

Sure. Start a ‘if this coin could talk’ jar.

It does look kinda neat, but remember that there is no numismatic value above face value. It is worth one cent. The good news is that you aren't salting away a fortune by keeping it.
