Trying to figure how this would happen.

Found this circulated penny, and assume this is just PMD, but It is curious to me how if this coin was hit on the reverse, then how is the front not affected? Also, why is the rim on the hit area taller than the rest of the rim on the coin... doesn't make sense to me?

If the coin was resting on a relatively compliant material (like leather), then the hit side could be flattened slightly with minimal damage to the other side.

It is just Post Strike Damage ( PSD).

Ok Spence... I follow that. But...

Hoped I was showing it in the pics, but the side of the coin that was "hit" the rim is at it widest point... it gets thinner around the bottom if the coin below Lincolns bust.

Note the 2nd image I posted - (side angle shot) maybe you can get what I am seeing. (at least you can use Lincoln for reference of where it is wide on the rim).

Still seems strange?

Perhaps it was hammer with a socket or pipe. The flattening on the edge is showing it was altered post strike.

EV... I figure it is PSD, that is not really my question.

Just trying to figure out how the more hard hit side, made the rim bigger not thinner.

and was trying to figure out how this took a hit on the backside, but front seems unaffected.

Yeah... not keeping it, just trying to figure on what may have happened? I would have thought the hit edge would have been the thinner side, That's all!

We can't say for sure what happened, since just about anything could happen.

Yeah... these circulated coins can be pretty beat up for various reasons, definitely hard to say what exactly happened!

Just find the tall rim strange, although dented and squished how it could end up wider? Only thing I could think is the coin had even a taller rim on that edge, which is maybe why it took that kind of hit in the first place on that side?

Anyways, I give up! LOL I will move on...
