Looking over this 1972 penny because at 1ST glance I couldn't see the (VDB) signature at the bottom of the Lincolns shoulder, noticed this "gap" around the entire coin. Is this normal? Or some type of mint error...just guessing over pressure strike or something.
(Found the VDB inside the bottom crease)
The reverse has a significantly smaller gap
Any help will be very appreciated Thank you All

Over abraded die? Early stage DDD?

On incuse devices, Such as the VDB, they are raised on the die. When die polishing happens they can be the area affected first, unless the operator is aware that the polishing could removed the devices.

@coop, great info. That explains the weak VDB.
Any ideas on the gap?

Now that we are on the subject of V.D.B. and VDB. When was the last year the dots between the initials disappeared?

1934

It is not 1909. They were added back a few later. But what year did the dots disappear. Hidden answer above. Just high light that area to see the answer.

As far as the "gap" your cent may have been encased in a "lucky/never go broke holder" in its past life. You could use the search box to find more info and other examples...

to CCF...good luck on future finds and have fun...
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

Does not look like a former Encased Coin to me.

@john1, I agree I'm not completely sure this coin was ever encased. The size of the gap differs on the entire coin.Larger gap at the bottom and gradually decreasing when arriving at the top
The reverse has a perty consistent gap size all around, kinda what I would expect to see on a Encased Coin. But no damage in the gap of signs of something being wedged inside.
Weird I don't know. Does anyone have any ideas?
