I found this cent CRH. This one is somehow look a little bigger and the rim are wider than the rest. Could someone help me identify this coin? What I'm thinking is "Environmental Damage" not so sure yet. I will weight it once I get home. Thanks guy.

Is it wider in size? If it is, it would be a Texas Cent. If it's not, than it could be struck on a thick planchet. If you can get the weight of the coin when you get home from work, that would be great. :-)

@E&R It is a little wider in size (diameter) also the edge. There is some words or at least a letter "R" right on top of the E in ONE on the reverse. Or maybe my eyes got blur of seeing thing after going through about 50 rolls.

It could be a Texas Cent then, since it's a little wider in size. http://www.lincolncentforum.com/for...owthread.php?

Just a little tiny bit not the whole lot increase in diameter of the whole coin.

Without a weight, I agree with Crazyb0. A Texas cent should not be thicker than a normal coin. In fact, I don't think it is thicker at all, but an illusion. Notice the rim is beveled on the "normal" coin while the rim is fully squared on the coin in question. That is due to a higher pressure strike forcing the planchet's metal to fill out the die more completely.

Crazyb0 is correct. It's a High Pressure Strike.

That means it is completely within Mint tolerance and actually slightly underweight*. It's a spender.

@vietguy

I don't know what I was thinking, but 2.54g is slightly overweight, not under. However, it is still completely within allowed tolerances (target weight is 2.5g) and is, therefore, a normal coin. Sorry for the misinformation.

This in neither. This is a case of a higher setup during the blank-planchet conversion. I remembered seeing and saving a few from that time. Even in a 2X2' they feel thicker. It is just the rim that makes it feel thicker. The normal thickness is the same. Just rim height is different. 97-99 I found these. No premium though.
