Pretty cool looking. I don't see a raised ridge around the deformity so I'm guessing it's not PMD. looks textured like fabric caused it but not sure. Can see relief on the reverse between the last column and last "A".

My first thought was grease with grit in it,but the bump on the opposite side makes me think PMD?

I thought it was a strike through too! With the corresponding bulge on the reverse it looks like it's just damage. Weird hit.

How or why does a corresponding bulge on the opposite side preclude something like this from being a struck through? the bulge is very slight.

The fact that the plating is intact in the depression makes me believe it is struck through.

Thanks for the feedback!

Because the dies would maintain the flatness of the fields. It happened after the strike by a hit that pushed out on the opposite side of the coin.
Here is a struck through a button:


Note reverse is normal?
Here is a coin that someone used a punch on:

This ruined the value for this coin in a couple of hits.

Thanks for the feedback CCF!

But,, A couple things I don't understand

Coop, thanks for the examples and I do understand how damaged coins have bulges but the examples you give of the penny PMD is clearly PMD (raised contact rim, pushed metal) whereas this coins affected area looks nothing like that. Several responders here first instinct was to say this was struck through. Whatever was in that void was not meant to be there and there is no other indicator of how it got there besides the obvious mint pressing. There are no tool markings or resemblance of tool contact. I assume coins cool down after pressings so is it possible this small raised area developed upon cooling?

I would love to look through a catalog of struck throughs if one exists please link for me.

I found this listed on eBay as a struck through with opposite side showing through but maybe this is PMD as well?




here is a close up of the reverse bump. There is damage on the column from something else I believe.

But both of these are coin damage, not a struck through. Both are pushing out of the opposite size. Note the first one struck through a button I posted. Just the obverse was affected. That is the way a struck looks. PSD pushes the reverse outwards like the last two coins you posted. ( PSD)

Note this counter stamp coin. It damages the obverse and pushes out the reverse.
