Post is updated from before so some pics may not be relevant in comments check them out. The AM also looks to be a Close AM

To me, this is one of two possibilities, and coop can chime in if needed. One, it could be a major struck thru grease or Greaser, or two, it could be a die adjustment strike. I read 1980 as the date by the way .

That's what I was thinking Dearborn but also then the weight being 2.5. Which is odd an having a Close AM.
2.5 Planchet on 1980 they r supposed to be 3.1.
Then if it is a 1989 still a Close AM reverse of 1988 either. I'll post the picp

Definitely a Close AM. I'm thinking its a Greaser, unless you see grinding marks we can't.

No grinding marks on hand. But it also weighs 2.5 grams?!? For a 1980 that would be crazy and then a 1989 normal weight but a Close AM. So like either way it's a win win

Thin planchet is my thought. Can't really tell from the pic as to how thick it is.
Discovering the truth does not have all the answers.

I don't think it shows characteristics of a thin Planchet. The coin in question is to the left.

This is without a doubt a 1989 zinc cored copper plated Cent. You can easily discern this by the split plating on the reverse above STATES. The right urn on the Monument steps has also had its copper plating rubbed off as well and is exposing the zinc core. As far as the Close AM, it's not a Close AM. The A has taken a hit which is evidenced by the split in the lower right leg of the A and has thus moved metal making it appear to be closer to the M. The coin weighs 2.5 grams. It is a zinc 1989 Cent that was most likely created by a Grease Filled Die.

Thanks bumpkin but I don't agree with the am being hit.there's no moved metal at all that makes it closer to the M. I'll try and take a better pic. I know it's not the best pic best we can do

I agree with Bumpkin. Wide AM zinc Greaser.
Also, we don't "repost" here. If you had pics to add, you should have done so to the original post. FYI.

Normal RDV-006 reverse for that year. As mentioned it is it has a Struck Through Grease issue on the strike. Thus the weakness of the devices. But not just a normal 'AM. for that year. The Close AM was not even conceived yet at that point 1993 was the first normal year for that design:
