So I was looking through some 1970-S LMC's and I came across this one. Looks like teeth mark from a gear on the edge, which COULD maybe possibly have happened at the mint. IF I didn't know better, I'd say it got caught on edge inside a large cent die (looks like dentils).

Just because the last large cent was struck in 1857 doesn't mean it aint possible.


So, if a coin is damaged after it is struck but before it leaves the mint, what the heck do you call it?

Definitely Post Strike Damage ( PSD) for sure. Although, I can't say what caused it, since there's many possibilities.

I partly agree-it looks more like the edge of a reeded coin like a quarter. Most of the time when we see these, the mark is on the field, but this looks like a simple contact mark between the edge crenelations of another coin and the smooth edge of this cent.

Also, there are some folks here who distinguish between PSD (post strike damage) and PMD (post mint damage) to account for the fact that many coins see their first wear and tear after striking, but before leaving the mint property.

with Spence. Still, that means it is damage and doesn't add value.

I had forgotten all about that sort of damage, it does resemble reeding.

The thought of it having value above one cent never even crossed my mind. I suppose most people who post here are hoping to have discovered some great rarity.

I'm just looking at coins.

Looks like letters. I see the s . also the way the strong difference in each one. Took a lot of impact force to accomplish that angle. Dont think it left the mint that way. Line it up with all denominations and words. Find a match and close the c ASE

Post a photo of the entire obverse of the coin. I suspect you will sew some form of damage 180 degrees from that posted.

You can see it is a compression damage as the coin has a raised spot where the teeth marks appear.
