I came across this cent online and found it to be odd, it appears as if it was struck through a die cap that had folded over on itself, is my diagnoses correct?

Whoa.
I buy that explanation. It looks like whatever folded over was the same diameter as the coin, but I'd imagine a die cap could be sheared through at the edge of the die if it got thin enough.

That sounds like a good way to describe it since the bottom of the Lincolns bust details are normal.

Very nice.

Looks like it could be a pre-1982 Lincoln, and I call that a major error. I wonder if one can look at it hard enough to make out a date?

The question I would ask is, "Why if the coin underneath the metal fully struck?" If there were a capped die, then why is the coin struck? with the metal laying one top showing the mirrored obverse strike?
Sent Mike Diamond a note on this one already.

Adam E is correct. This cent was struck through a late-stage conventional die cap or a uniface die cap. Part of the cap bottom separated from the wall, folded over, and was struck into the planchet represented by this cent. Hence the brockage of Lincoln's bust. It's a highly unusual error. It's currently up for auction on eBay at an unrealistically steep price.

Thank you for the confirmation!

Just out of curiosity Mike, what kind of value would one expect to get out of this? I know "highly unusual" doesn't always correlate to value, especially when it comes to error coins, but would this carry a significant premium over conventional die cap strike throughs?

I'd say $150 is more realistic, considering that the coin has been cleaned and turned an ugly color afterward. This isn't the first time I've encountered this specimen.
