@Macadioss, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree with @ussid18 that your '60 cent is heavily damaged (not a mint error). Third, I moved your thread over here to the correct section to get more eyeballs on it.

Looks like it was in the parking lot and either suffered through a burn out, or they stopped on a dime Cent.

I can envision an 'industrial accident' taking out the cent, from right to left.

First let me say that I appreciate everyone's opinion but if you look carefully that if the penny was adamaged by a vehicle or anything else the letters would have been obliterated beyond recognition and scraped off the penny completely. You would not see a double imprint of each letter in the word"God" on top of the so called scrape. Also the coloring of different shades so perfectly blended with the curves and such. When a coin is in a industrial accident the culprit that scraped the penny so viciously didn't have the capability to blend colors ln such a beautiful rainbow prism like appearance it would have, like I said, scraped the penny down to solid copper and not left a second shadow of lettering nor a rainbow of Colors. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing another opinion of what could have been the cause. There is also some kind of white material embedded in the coin which seems to be part of material that makes up the coin itself because the coin encumbers the material (overlaps the whole perimeter) instead of just embedding into the coin. Another opinion please and/ or scientific analysis even a sound explanation please

Your coin has very clearly been damaged after it left the mint. Exactly how it happened is impossible to determine, but the minting process is well known and there is nothing in the process that could result in this. I don't think you will get any differing opinions.

You have asked for opinions and you have received them from some very knowledgeable people.
My opinion is the same as everyone else's. There are only certain things that can happen during
the striking of the coin that can cause an error and this is not one of them.
It is impossible to say, unless you were there at the time exactly what happened but
no matter the cause, it is damage. More opinions are not going to change that fact.
Keep it as a novelty of you like but it's s value is still only 1 cent.
