Check this out. Any info on this? I think it was minted like this because the scratches are only on the Lincoln head.

Impossible to be minted like that during the striking of the coin. PMD (Post Minting Damage)

Very Spendable. A damaged coin is not an error coin. If you took a sledge to you new truck, would that create a factory error?

Same with coin. Damage is not an error.

Damaged coins ( PMD) are to be found everywhere. Tony, I'll say the same thing to you... your coins look as if they have found time living on the street, being walked on and/or being driven over. PMD.

Absolutely no way anything like that could have happened during the minting process. Scratches, gouges, displaced metal, damage for sure.

LOL. Thanks. My first reaction was an out-loud laugh. I love humor, of all types.
I started that reply almost word for word as Keith did, but without knowing you well I didn't want to misread anything and cause a ruckus (which can happen in the two-dimensional world of online posts).

Thanks again for the dry lighthearted humor and chuckles you shared!
