Can someone help with this coin. The obverse and reverse both appear to have been lightly struck. The reverse devices are almost unrecognizable. I do not see signs of grinding or sanding. Is this likely post minting coin damage, or a possible error?

Really?
How do you account for the abrasion lines on the reverse?
Looks like someone took a file to it.

Notice no rim on reverse....sanded down then continued to circulate until you found it...not worth the cost of a 2x2 IMO....spend it and forget it...but remember the PMD for next time....good luck

Agree, just deliberately defaced.

And also check the diameter, the obverse looks like it might have been hit a glancing blow from a hammer. The 975 along with the right side has been flattened.

Post mint damage ( PMD), not a mint error of any sort. It did not leave the mint looking like that.
