Here is a 1903 One Penny. I tried to magnify the date part using primitive condtions, is there something out od he ordinary there, like a Grease Filled Die or a double die? I'm putting them together for a date run, so might be good to write on the cardboard if there is something unusual with this coin.

Strangely, the date seems to be punched in, if thats the correct English term for that. Any ideas?

Difficult to see, but I can't think of a logical explanation other than post mint damage? Someone trying to change the date with a die? I can't see how this effect could have occurred in the minting process.

Not a Doubled Die and I don't think it is a Grease Filled Die. Doesn't look like it could
happen during the striking of the coin so the only alternative is PMD

At hand, the coin has a feeling that date is somehow punched in to the coin. The faint line of raised metal seems very straight to be a PMD. However, I also believe its difficult to do that while the coni in being minted, so I am with you guys here, most probably a PMD. Thank you for your input.

I suspect that the coin suffered a hit on the date area many years ago, and that subsequent circulation wore it down and further distorted it. These coins were legal tender up to 1971 and had quite a hard life.
