Looks like an upside down 'D' transferred from another coin. No reverse image opposite that area. That might show us a contact mark on the reverse rim. (leaving that area flattened)

Coop, did you mean upside-down B?

I thought the same thing since, on a regular "B", the lower loop is larger than the upper part.

The lower loop appears smaller on the op's coin which is opposite a normal "B".

Was there any conclusion as to what this was from PCGS or are you still waiting? I think it's a vice job after looking at it a little bit. It looks like the rim has two areas that were affected and metal was moved at the bottom of the bust close to the right side and above the T R in trust. There is also what looks to be an indent in the earlobe. I actually super imposed a circle the same size as the coin over the first in the position another coin would have had to be and even though it was an quick and acrude experiment, it matched up perfectly and the B seems to be in the right place. Plus the highest relief on the coin, abe's face looks really flattened which would have happened when it was squeezed against what would have prob been the bust of another coin. Theres not much definition in the bust so it easily would have left a defined mark. Just my humble opinion.

Good morning all. I wanted to post the results of my PCGS submission. As I have only submitted a few items I am not sure what this means. I know it is not put in a holder! Plus they mention lamination. There is no mention whatsoever of the dropped letter which is a bit disappointing since that is why I sent it. I guess I'm left with more questions. Any help with what this means would be very helpful.

To the right of the last 'T' on Trust there is a lamination peel there. Yes, I meant a 'B' instead of a 'D'. I still feel it was a transfer from another coin. But think of it Mirrored?

I agree,john1 also confirmed this as PMD at the beginning of this topic and I'm sure that's why PCGS did not verify nor recognized it as a ** dropped letter **.It is a spender.

I'm not disappointed with the determination it was a good learning experience. I'm am disappointed with the lack of communication sent to me. This doesn't answer any of my questions about the dropped letter which is why I sent it. I guess it's not in good enough condition to even talk about?

Tippy when you submitted your coin did you put it in a flip with a sticker labeling the coin and the "dropped letter"? If it's not what you think it is , they're not going to write you an explanation of what they think happened. The people on this forum answered that before you submitted it. Lesson learned. I've been there before.

this is what I submitted along with the flip. I felt like I was pretty clear and concise.

A dropped letter would continue onto the field. This is a contact mark from another cent.
