Hello all here I am again with a question about the date on this coin. As you can see the 8 has something on the bottom of it. I'm just learning all the wongmder lingo of what everything means.I also included a 1963 D penny in the word LIBERTY the L looks like the number 2.

@dhadd, always best to restrict your threads to a single coin if possible, but not a big deal. Your '83 was struck from a die with a broken post on the lower part of the number 8 and the L of LIBERTY has been damaged on the '63-D.

The filled 8 is a die chip (AKA broken post). The distorted L appears to be the result of a circulation hit--moved metal. Full and sharp photos of the coin's obverse and reverse would be welcome--might be other interesting things happening. Thanks.

Actually the reason it is raised above the '8' is that the post broke off below the fields, thus making that void taller than the devices. I've seen this before:

When the post breaks off flush with the fields the filling of the device is only as full as the device.
When the post takes out metal below the fields, then it look like your coin. Not damage from another coin. Just the void below the field makes it taller than the devices.
