I'm wondering if I could get some help on this. At first I thought it was a damaged coin, but after looking closer decided to get the magnifier out and it appears to have mint damage, and a lot of it. Die Clash, doubling, heavily abraded, and cud etc
Can someone determine what exactly is happening here? Thanks in advance!
Ali

Sorry but I'm quite sure that your first thought was correct. I'm primarily seeing damage--no die clash, no cuds, and maybe only a whisper of Machine Doubling.

Thanks Spence, I just realized I posted this topic in wrong thread and can't figure out how to move it to modern coins errors/varieties #128532;
I definitely see PMD as well, but the rim separation and the scratches going under the letters/design is what makes me think mint damage. Here are a couple more pictures that show what I'm referring to. Maybe An example of a design creep? Lol I don't know, but I see images of on the reverse side, like floating? 2nd to last picture here shows it next to shield looks like another image of shield to left of that.

....and maybe I'm seeing things, but this sure looks like a D mintmark to me. Maybe it's really a 2016 D this is close up pic and arrow on pic from original post. Anyone else see it

Don't stress about posting in the wrong forum. I asked the mods to move this thread (you can too, by clicking on the "report this post to the staff" link in the bottom right corner of your post).

I'm unfamiliar with the term "design creep", but even with these new pics, I'm still convinced that your coin is only damaged. As to the possibility of a mintmark on the rim just above the L of LIBERTY, that seems pretty unlikely to me. I agree that the hunk of raised metal is somewhat D-shaped though.

Massive post mint damage. No mint errors, just an abused coin.
