Hello all,
Hope everyone is having a great day. Had a question. I found this coin and out of the damaged coins found I dont get this one. It seems to be separating from the rim on the obverse and reverse possible doubling on the nose mouth but again dont know if its just damaged and if so what in the world causes this. Only coin I found with this. Your thoughts greatly appreciated.

Just damage.
Looks like someone has ground of the rims.
Didn't leave the mint that way so not an error.

@JS, I don't see doubling on the nose or mouth, but I do see some areas where the copper plating is missing and the zinc core is visible. One thing which causes that peculiar pattern of rim erosion is placing cents in those aluminum "lucky cent" cases. However, since your coin is from 1996, I'm thinking that there is probably some other explanation. I will be interested to read what others think.

Yep, it's just Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). There's no doubling. That's Zinc Rot corrosion setting in, do to the Copper plating breaking, causing the Zinc core to get exposed. Now that air reached to the Zinc, it's now rotting away. As we know, Zinc is very corrosive. It's worth face value unfortunately, since it's a damaged coin.

I think Spence is on the right track. Looks to have been put into some kind of bezel like for a keychain or something similar
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my coins for what I told her I paid for them.

These have been discussed numerous times before, most going the dryer coin route. I say it was caught in some form of rotating mechanical device which put pressure mostly upon the rims. I have found similar and to put a common stinkin zinkin in a bezel or to encase it is ridiculous. still say it's this:



I have seen the coins caught inside these smaller machines used at a bank, they get caught in the oddest of places and cause jams that have to be forcefully cleared, or at times damages the spinning sorting drum.

One would think but never say never when it comes to turning a cent into something that can be sold for 10 bucks! Can't get anymore zincoln than these cuff links!

I also think it has been encased, a picture from reverse probably will confirm that.
