Hi
I would usually throw out as PMD, seeing the coin was hit so hard to show on the obv and rev of the coin but I looked closer and from what I can tell it was somewhere in the strike/eject process?
I ask for help on this because when looking at rev the hit point at 2 is concaved and directly in the center of the coins edge and shows both on obv and rev
BUT the hit point at 10 is only half the reeding and the reeding is neither interrupted nor dented in the hit in any way and shows only on the rev.
Thank you for any help

I'm guessing it's PMD but I'll wait for the error experts.

Thanks coinfrog, That would be my first thought but that reeding is so crisp for such a hard hit and not angled off as I would expect, But I too will wait for other experts opinions...Thats why I'm here and Thank you to all for the help

Definitely PMD
There is no way a dent can occur while the planchet is encased in the collar.

Thank you JimmyD
I'm still having a hard time grasping PMD
Hits straight across 3-9 and mashing the reeding absolutely but such a hard hit at 9-2 +- and not seeing a third point of contact and leaving the reeding looking untouched without mashing them while pushing in that far in on only 1/2 the coins edge ...? possible I guess ?
I dont know all the exact minting processes that might or might not have the ability to do this and will have to accept the concensus even though I have a hard time reasoning as to how ......

There are hundreds of ways that damage can occur to a coin but there are a limited number of things that can cause an error.
You might not always know what caused the damage unless you were there, what is important is to know that there is
no way that could happen during the striking of the coin therefore it has to be damage.

looks like it was held rather tightly in a pair of vise-grips.

PMD and a minor MAD.

Post mint damage. As JimmyD pointed out, it didn't leave the mint looking like that. PMD can happen in a million ways without us knowing exactly how. Not an error coin this time, but keep looking!
