Take any coin, brutally hammer a cavity into it... then, look at the other side...


SPP, I have done it, and know the results. This still does not explain the weak strike effecting the "N" in One, and the tapering of the "E" and "T" in cents. They would be full if it was punched. The "7" is very weak in hand as well. A hammered coin would not show wear on theses spots as they would be concaved from the blow.

I don't think a cavity was hammered here, to odd of a shape for a punch.

One way or another, lets figure it out.

Then you are speaking of a phenomenon completely independent of what created that cavity.

Weak strikes and strike-through (clogged dies) are common for the period, especially with Edward strikes.

The obverse is the anvil die... think about that for a minute...

I have a TON of coins, with both being struck through hard objects and struck through planchets with large cavities... you do not get the effect I am seeing here.

Who said it was a punch? A drill bit (not designed for drilling metal) with enough pressure in a press would do the same...

There is not a single informed error collector I know out there, who would even begin to attempt to accept this as being a legitimate error...

Oh, SPP, don't leave me hanging! What's up with this coin.

Refer to Hounddog Bill's and DBM's posts above... you were already given the answers. Several times. You deciding not to accept the opinions of seasoned large cent collectors and error collectors is something not worth figuring out.
