Hello from Michigan.... Every once and awhile I try and sort through all my saved change to look for treasures, usually after 3 days I'máoverwhelmed and put it all back! Lol I recently came across this 1971 D penny and the date struck me as odd, Ive tried finding another online but no luck, ive seen some with the last digit missing and almost missing... but not slanted and small like this one. Has anybody ever seen something similar or have an idea why this appears so off balance? I first thought maybe it was another number half cut off but upon closer look I dont believe that to be true either. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated as I am new to coin searching and have been researching basic info for the past year when I can, but there is without doubt alot of info to learn. Thx in advance.

to CCF. Photos would help, but be slanted it sounds like coin wrapping/counting/vending machine damage.

We need pictures to confirm but as John1 stated, it sounds like it could be
from a coin wrapping machine which often damages the last number of the date.

Good pictures.
Just damage. Something has hit the 1 and moved it over.
You can see on the field where it was originally.

But the question is how did it happen? Well you have to consider the date and living through that era helps me to know what happened. First note, that the affected area is parallel to the rim. So something Mechanical altered the device. But Remembering as a kid getting gumballs from a machine:

There is the answer. These machine altered the coins put through them. So when we see the last digit afftected, remember the days of our youth and how we may have been the one who put it in the machine that damaged your coin?

Thanks guys, that makes so much sense! I cant believe I havent ran across the same while searching through different error topics and whatnot. I do see the parallel to rim factor, thats alot of help. I appreciate your time and knowledge. It def is a world of many opinions and uncertainty... so crazy how somebody can be asking thousands for a coin yet all the info I can possibly find about it says its worth $2! Lol
Between coins, old glass bottles and rockhounding.... I'mánever in a world without wonder!

It's actually worth 1ó face value, and about 2ó copper value.
