I found this in a circulated bankroll, from a bank box of U.S. Pennies. I looked at the edge, and it's not damaged from pushed in metal. It's not a Gas Bubble etheir. It's raised. I took side shot picture, so you can see that it's raised. What do you think guys? I'm debating this one, and you can too! Any help would be appreciated.

Think that's called an indent isn't it? Something hit the edge of the field level inside the rim offset.


The major difference David is it doesn't affect the rim in any way.

So Crazyb0, it might be a Die Dent possibly?

See the diagram, left side arrow to center? It is called an indent because of location. A Die Dent is just a depression anywhere on the die surface, including this as well, call it what you will, for sake of location, I'd prefer "indent", because something horizontally "indented" it there, possibly the moving feeders, or another part. But the damage is sideways, not vertical/angled from die face.

You can tell because this indent is lower than the rim top of the coin.

Also, your first pix shows a slight nick on the rim offset too, this is caused by the same thing , sideways motion into the die.

Oh okay, I get it now. Thank you for explaining it to me! I'll keep it and label it "1998 P LMC with indentation on lower rim".
