Post Strike Damage on coins.
Watching the new amount of damaged coins posted lately with various issues of damage, I thought it might be helpful to determine which type the coins can be in. On this set of images it does not cover all types of damage, just the ones recently posted. (about the last 2-3 weeks)
I divided them into 4 groups.
1. Circulation damaged coins from contact with other coins:




2. Intentional damaged coins done deliberately (Most of the coin examples we of this type)











3. Damaged before entering circulation by various means.

4. Unknown if before or after circulation the damage could have occured.


I could Add more image of other examples, but I was trying to show what recently appeared on the forum. But it seems like more examples of intentional damaged coins are being found.

Mr. Cooper..Thanks for all the work you put forward to teach us all here at CCF. I had been visiting this site for the past 2 1/2 years (joined less than 2 weeks ago) and have learned an uncountable amount about coins in general from you and the other experts....and you know within those years,I believe I've only seen 1 of your coins. Thanks again for all the selfless teachings...

you could add bullet holes. Seams popular I'm not sure why
and jewelry drilled holes.

I have a few of those.

I used examples from a recent time period. I know there are a lot of other examples. Seeing that so much of the time the altered coins are posted, identification is probably pointless, as they are still when all is said and done, the coin remains, a damaged coin. Probably I should create a thread on "How to identify, why they are not a mint errors." That is probably were I should go next.

That would be a great idea and members can send you additional images of damaged coin to add to your archive.

Thank you.
Here are a few examples if you would would like to add to your archive:

Great posts and wonderful photos. Coin collecting is a visual hobby and I don't think there can ever be too many good photographs of examples to guide us.

Having said that, can I suggest one minor edit?

The comment about a coin rocking if pushed at different angles always being Post Strike Damage might be a little broad? I have a fondness for PITD/Ghosted coins (I know they don't have much premium, just cool to look at) and some of them, especially the Lincoln cents, can develop a bulge on one side that causes them to rock a little, as the image transfer becomes more pronounced.

Apologies if this seems like nitpicking an otherwise great thread.

With great images already here, I have a lot already on hand. It is funny how someone will look at an image and see one thing and I will see other things that could be used for other discussions for educational purposes. (My image host count is getting nearer to 10K images each day)

It maybe soldier on that area? It looks like something added to the coin. Possible another coin was pressed against it while the soldier was still hot. Not a mint error.
