I know what you thought... when the title said circle you though "ooh here we go again" but this time your wrong, it really is a circle on Abe's face. I have done a ton of research online to find something like it to no avail. My question is what caused this and what is it called. It is neat and I have not seen one like it. It is raised and not indented technically extra metal. I am glad it is in good condition and red. thanks everyone for looking




Let me know if you need better pics (I know one is behind plastic but the others are not)

OOh dang it looks like a one did not show I thought I took more than what was on my computer. I will redo a couple more or see if I can find the ones I had. Bear with me at least you can see it in the two and y'all say in the directions to see the reverse so I posted it as well. I just want to show it a bit more clear.

I'm a bit confused by your explanation?

One coin or two? (if it's two, please one coin per thread)

To me the one photo that shows a circle (the only one), it's post mint damage. How the circle was formed, I haven't a clue, but it did not leave the mint looking that way. A clash with something? If you photographed these through a 2x2, please remove the coin first. Thanks.

again

These are interesting in that no one seems to know what causes the error. I would love to find one in this condition. Put it in a 2x2 to keep it safe. As coop said, nice "Crop Circle" / UFO!

Yokozuna,
definitely cool regardless if it's valuable or not. I got plenty of coins that are cool but only worth face value. Like this one:



not sure the story on it, but it looks like a wreck.
I've noticed that if a coin has no numismatic value people in the community don't want to see it nor care to give a opinion on how it happened. I am not driven by monetary value. I personally enjoy the history of how and why regardless of value. I also believe that it's possible even if the odds are really bad. glass is half full for me. I understand it probably didn't happen at the mint (on any coin) but it's possible, just unlikely, but, still possible.

Those tiny circles are interesting. I just found one on a 1990 Lincoln cent.
