Sandwich three pennies on a hard surface. Hit with a hammer. Note what the middle one looks like...very much like yours.

The incuse and backwards lettering impressed into your penny is just one giveaway.

The same kind of damaged coin can be produced with a vice.

Nothing like this can come from the mint according to how coins are made.

Agree. Most likely done in a vice.

Thanks for the info. I had no idea at all. I am not coin savvy.

Explosive impact techniques will produce the best results for this type of 'error'.

If the faker spends this amount of effort to produce this type of explosive impact 'error',
the product could be collectible, provided it is sold as a shed job, and the price is low enough.

My price for this coin would be 1˘ as I don't see mutilation as being desirable. For me this coin is a spender.
