This coin has a lot going on so I'm not really sure where to begin other than just showing a couple pics.

Looks like PMD. I think heat damage is what causes those bubbles.

I understand that but how could this much damage be done to a coin without affecting it's mint luster?

That I cannot say. I'm sure there are others in the forum though that know more about that.

It was struck more than once. That much I'm sure of. Maybe a collar flip? I really just don't know.

Don't confuse mint luster with the underlying shininess of the copper on the damaged areas

Sever scraping/tooling/grinding along with extreme heat damage. Post mint damage.

It's "mint luster"? You're kidding, right? That's like having a car that has been rolled into a crumpled ball after being hit by a train and saying, "Well the rear-view mirror still works." Assuming you're half-way serious, I'll add, this coin has zero numismatic value, and I doubt even face value with this train wreck of a coin. And no, it was not struck twice in the minting process. Post mint, it was hammered probably several times, but at the mint, no.

All right first thing first. You're kind of a . Just sayin. Now we got that out of the way? I'm not talking about the Big blob at the bottom genius. Although that Big blob is the same shape as Lincoln's head just turned about 20░ to the right and the misshapen area to the left also has the same outline.

Understand your hiding behind a keyboard but being rude without directly saying anything is just childish so don't try and make up for it with your nice comment afterwards. It's facetious and very much unappreciated thank you

How ever it happened, whatever happened to it, it is not a mint error or variety. It is PMD all day long.

Just very badly damaged. No way to say how, quite possibly intentionally. Nothing in the minting process could account for it though.

Not much new with my comment--this coin has suffered greatly damage-wise. Being a '64 D with some localized hint of residual copper luster is not unusual. The coin doesn't appear to have undergone a high degree of general pocket-to-cash register-to-pocket circulation wear--like one might expect with a Lincoln cent from the 20s or 30s.

There is brute force damage, and there is general circulation wear--while they can be related, one isn't always found with the other.
