Hi All,
I noticed a huge crater in this coin (reverse side), which shows up as a raised surface on the obverse.
Is this an error? Is it of any worth due to that?

Thanks!

Who or whatever damaged the back, pushed the metal out on the front. Cause and effect. Maybe someone had it in their shirt pocket and got shot in that exact spot and it saved their life...I'm just saying. Could be the luckiest penny ever

Scary.....never thought of it that way. I always say....if coins can talk!!

Off-topic, but did you ever slowly rotate a Lincoln Penny between your fingers? There are things that start to show up....like hidden symbols and signals....odd

Perhaps a new topic should be created for 'hidden symbols and signals'...

Looks like some PMD. You can see the pushed up metal.
