Guessing this was produced using a vise after the coin left the mint.

Hello Rarelycoincident and

It would be helpful if you could post complete photos of each side of the coin.

To me this looks like a 'vice job', where someone has squeezed a coin in between two others. The extra details and date are reversed and incuse. If it had been struck twice at the mint, they would be raised and not reversed. I believe this is post-strike damage.

Looks like another 63 was put on this one and slammed with a hammer.

i can see why in the picture at a glance , damage is the most relevant answer. the coin is in relatively good shape , showing no other extreme wear besides the raised areas that see normal wear. there is a Cub to the right of the 3 in the intended strike date. something is struck into the coin on Abe's collar. the rim is very intact for its circulated age.
IS IT ME, OR DOES THE "WE" LOOK WONKY ?

Someone tried to fake an error. They pressed this coin between two other coins to transfer part of the design to this coin. The main clue here is the reverse date. If it were struck twice, the date wouldn't be reversed like this.

The low E in the word WE is just part of the design. It varies in just how noticeable it is from year to year of the Lincoln cent series.

1963 is backwards (reversed) above LIBERTY. Vice job with two 1963 Lincoln Cents.

Definitely a vise job, not sure the vice squad handles this sort of thing.

Another thing to more on the reversed date is that it is incused (pressed into the coin, not raised. The fact that it reversed is enough to know that someone manufactured this 'error'.

If the coin in the press did flip over or rotate and was pressed again, the second date would be raised like the original date.
