Hey all, I'm new to errors and varieties, and I ran across this coin today in a bank wrapped roll search. Seems to have extra metal on the chest/shoulder of Lincoln and on the area between rim and shoulder. I'm thinking a die break, but honestly cannot find any information online. Would love some help determining this, please. It doesn't look like your normal damaged coin.
Thanks in advance :)

VanorMan, In My opinion, The coin shows breaks in the die. The similar die breaks shown, on the planchet, going to the most outer portions of the rim, would indicate the die was broken in more than one place too. Could you please post the reverse, Wondering, What does the reverse show, Either remnants or not, Thanks? PS, I believe there is another die break, on Mr Lincoln's Right lapel too......

@vm, first welcome to CCF. Second, those marks along the rim are quite interesting. Rather than a die break or cud, these look to me like scraped copper from the rim. Here is a close-up which seems to back-up that conclusion:

Cool, here is the reverse. Didn't look any special, but who am I to say that, haha! Yes, I saw the other potential break on the lapel.

I would agree on the copper scraping as well, looks like it got shaved and folded on itself.

I'm excited about the find. I think it's a pretty cool looking coin at least. :)

Perhaps once mounted as a tietack or cufflink?

Not seen anything like this.

Sorry, but this is just a damaged coin. PSD. I've seen this type of damage before. The metal got scrapped by something outside of the U.S Mint. No errors here.
