Hey all. I have this 95 Lincoln that weighs 2.50. It is a little bigger in diameter as others. And has slightly rounded edges making it appear thinner than normal penny. The lettering on obverse are very distorted and irregular. There is also a significant lip on reverse.
Any help identifying it would be appreciated,
Thanks for your time.

With the weight being normal, the size slightly larger, and the extra distance of the letters from the edge, it looks like you found a coin that was struck out of collar.

Nice find and good eye since the strike still seems relatively centered.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

It is a broad struck. Nice catch!
