Hi there, please forgive me and my long posting. I am new to terms in the Coin World and to forums & the coin community. I am not a hobbyist but I do like to collect coins that strike my interest. Sometimes I just need some of that feedbac/criticism from some of the fellow collectors so I am not naive and believe anything google says to me, because lets just face it, it just leads me to a frustrating disappointment . This coin and googles misleading searches has persuaded me into writing this post

So, I have here a 2016 D Lincoln "One Cent" penny that I had picked up in pocket change (& I'm not positive) late fall of 2016. I could as well be the only (besides the retail store) the second person to have handled this coin. It appears to be missing the collar? and some of the copper dye. Some of the red & blue tones are due to me handling it and keeping it stashed in a small tin with other coins.

The L in liberty seems to look flush but I can't seem to strain my eyes enough to fully tell, but maybe a really great persuasive man made error . So I came here for some fellow advice and no disrespect,
But what do you all think I've got here?

to CCF!

I am sorry to inform you that the coin is simply damaged - there is no error. The rim and some high points in the design were sanded or ground down to reveal the zinc core beneath the copper plating. While somewhat interesting to view, it is only worth a cent (penny).

damaged. How might remain a mystery but damaged nonetheless.

And btw...

Welcome to the Forum. You've come to a phenomenal place to share and learn. Enjoy.

Edit: in answer to your title the CCF does have a glossary and here is a link to common acronyms used in coin collecting I reference from time to time:

Not a dryer coin, just abraded (intentionally or accidentally).
