First thing: I have seen this before. In hand and under magnification.
It is damaged. The letters and columns have been flattened and "bulged out" which gives the appearance of layering.
The lack of a copper layer around the rim is the result of something rubbing or scraping it off.
These two conditions are often noted on coins that have been stuck in a clothe dryer. We call these " dryer coins"

DrDon I don't doubt you have seen something like it, but you haven't held this one. It is as described in previous posts. Not sure why it's not believable. Ok, so as I have said before it has letters on top of letters, a Lincoln face on top of the other, the monument has one on top of it also. It's not just smashed. It's LAYERED.I could pull his face off to prove my point and lay it beside the coin but why would I. I'm not trying to be disrespectful but I'm telling everyone what I have and I'm being told I don't have what I'm saying. Thanks for reaching out but I have to respectfully disagree

It's just a damaged coin as stated before. It might not be what you wanted to hear, but it's 100% correct and true.

Well dam E&V you sure?Damaged huh?Looked like around a MS67 maybe MS68 to me,but you say (damaged). So is an error coin as you say damaged somehow? EV yes it is a damaged coin I agree with you,but you haven't held it in your hand to see what I have so stop telling me WHAT YOU THINK I HAVE! AS for me maybe I'll throw a hand full of pennies in the dryer to see what the heck your talking about. #129303;. Side by side pictures to follow my coin hunter friends. You guys are the best
