I recently purchased a 1980 cent that was sold as a coin that had an indent. However, it has (somewhat) identifiable lettering within the indent. I just can't figure out if the letters are from the reverse die, from a cent already struck, or from something else. Help would be appreciated.

The lines look like the lines on the jacket.

I believe that is one of the N's from ONE CENT. Doesn't seems to match the lines from the jacket.

You have to keep in mind that the image is mirrored and slightly distorted. Does a cent fit into that area?

It's a partial brockage from the struck tab of an off-center cent. Your coin also has a partial collar error.

Thanks for your thoughts. I too thought it looked like part of ONE. If you turn it a little, the backward image seems to show just the edge of the o , then the N in reverse, and the next straight line looks like the spine of the E, with parallel lines from it, especially on the final picture. Please check it again and let me know if I'm way off. Thanks.

Thanks to all of you for your help. Without more info, I will assume it is indeed part of the reverse of another cent, specifically a portion of the ONE, and you were right, Mike, about the partial collar. So, it is indeed a double error coin.
