I found this 1978 penny that I cant make sense of. It is kind of funny. Well you tell me. I'mnew to the coin collecting world. I dont know if this some kind misstrike or what? But I assume it is from the mint since the D is crooked. I would appreciate and information of the cause and if it has a greater value.

Almost looks like a counterstamp but I can't make out an image. Regardless, I'd say post strike damage.
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.

Weight? Looks like some kind of PMD. Maybe thick acid of some kind? Need much better pics and the weight would help also.

@CMR, your second set of pics is very good, but a close up of one of the affected areas would be useful as noted above. Fundamentally, one thing that we are trying to understand is whether the coin has some weird surface staining, or as it kinda looks like, the field of the coin is no longer flat. Those kinda look like contour lines on a topographic map, which is very odd.

Maybe an epoxy or a resin or glue on the coin?

To CCF! Definitely Post Strike Damage ( PSD). Probably some type of residue, maybe glue?
