Appears to be damage inflicted with a blunt object. Reverse photo(s) will surely help.

I don't think this is just damage the there are no tool marks and Lincolns face isn't distorded at all like it would be and the displacement of metal is too clean to have happened post mint

Sorry, doesthiscount, the reverse pretty much settles it as damage. If the reverse were completely clean, and only the front showed any indentation, it could be a strike-through error, but this is clearly just damage.

Post Strike damage. Not an error. Value, 1 cent.

Yep, just damage. PSD. Nothing in the minting process could have done this. It's impossible.
