I found this 1994 D LMC with the reverse and obverse on the obverse side of the cent. It isn't a vice job nor do I believe this is entirely from staining as the pictures will show raised lines of the reverse. The reverse of this cent is not affected at all and there is no flattening anywhere to show this was put in a vice. Stumped with this one. Insight please as to how this could have happened.

I agree with stain marks. most likely from another cent on top of this one and some kind of liquid getting in between.

Chase, my biggest question is if it were another cent on top of this one the why the raised lines to the left of the bust as well as the raised lines IN the bust and why it goes all the way to the bust. Another cent on top would have created a gap between the bust and the field. And, the lines are raised and cannot be removed. I even used a fingernail and it would not move. Again, I am stumped with this one. Staining was my only plausible guess.

Those are definitely stains. Appears to be from the reverse of an another Lincoln Memorial cent.

David, I believe that is the case too but why are the lines raised outside and inside the bust in the facial area. That is what is stumping me. The last pic shows the lines to be raised.

That is an illusion. Why do I say that. What are the chances of a die clash affecting the deeper part of the bust design on a die. Non. It happened as mentioned, as sitting on the coin from another coin. Also the dark colored image is upside down from what position the dies would be sitting on a normal die clash. No way this is a mint error. PSD

Thank you Mr. Coop. I so see it being a stain itís just the raised lines on the facial area really had me stumped.

If there are raised lines, then it might be from the residue that stained the coin.

A soak in acetone might help. It is PMD, for sure.
