Good Afternoon Coin Family
I have been collecting coins for years, but still have so much to learn. I know that die clashes present with part of the obverse design visible on the reverse. As well as some of the reverse design visible on the obverse.

The coin I came across while searching my change the other day seems to appropriately have the opposite design visible on its opposite sides. However, I am seeing some other devices that, to me, are not part of the opposite designs.

I feel, as well, that there are also parts of extra wheat stalks right next to the ones that are supposed to be there. Which makes me wonder if this is a die clash, or something else.i feel there are parts that fit die clash requirements, but that wouldn't explain everything going on. At least not to me when I use what I have learned so far.

Any opinion you may have to help me figure out what has caused this coin to be so damaged is appreciated. Thank you so much.

Guessing this is just severe post-mint damage, probably deliberate.

Thank you coinfrog!I thought, myself, that this coin was awful "busy", if I may use that word to describe it.

Yes, there is a lot going on, but it all looks like post-mint damage to me. From what, exactly, I can't tell.

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

Looks like it was squeezed twice in a vise with another coin altering the obverse. The sort of semi circles are the rims from the donor coin on to this victim coin. The coin was not treated with care. Showing sever battle scars. Just a Wheat cent now. The flattened areas on the reverse is opposite where the damage happened.
