to the CCF! It may be an ancient symbol but it is Post strike damage. It appears to be some type of novelty coin.

They are not novelty coins, dear. See the letters and stars over Monticello.

What are the cents weight? If they weigh less than 3.1 grams, assuming they are copper, the obverse may have been ground flat and stamped with this symbol on it. What makes me think this? They show a rim on the reverse and there is no rim on the obverse. One other thing that tells me it is a novelty coin, the flattening of all the devises on the reverse including the rim, they were flattened when the obverse was struck with this symbol.

That is what I suspected. I'm sorry to say but they are novelty coins. My previous reply is what I believe happened to these cents.

Big Supporter, Would you do all the hard work on these kinds of poor strikes coins?
Look at the United States of America, almost malted. Does it make sense?

Moon, you would be amazed at what people would do to a coin to make a dollar. Google hobo nickel and you'll understand.
