Nifty one here. Struck through a die cap which itself had been clashed before this strike. I'm a little confused about the raised circle in the upper left of the obverse, where the clash seems particularly strong.

Nice, I've got one of these I'm hoping to post soon. The circle in the upper left looks like a second clash. Maybe a floating clash?

That's a nice one! Unsure of the circle in the top left. Any chance the die cap could have been cracked? If so I do wonder what the indented line inside the circle is..

Possible fold on the deteriorating die cap.

I missed this one the first time around as well.
The circular line looks to be raised and mimics a pre-cud die crack.
It appears to me that after the cap clashed with the reverse die, the circular area acted like a pre cud die and vertically recessed from the rest of the cap. Through subsequent strikes , this would better preserve the clash details in this area. Thus the appearance of this coin

The semi circle looks interesting, but note, there is nothing on the reverse die that would create that? The cap is flattening/spreading. Note the devices are are distorting on the cap area. Unless there was a large die crack on the obverse, I can't see why the semi circle is there? Check to see if there are any listings of a cud on that years large date cents on 'Cuds on Coins'. That might explain what that is? (A die crack that developed into a cud?)

I am in the field catching bats and have almost no time for coins right now. But Stoneman's interpretation seems reasonable. Maybe give Mike a ping for this one, as I just really am short on time to think about such things right now. Only a 12-hour day/night today but spending the night in a swamp fighting mosquitoes was not exactly fun and not home to even look at the coin right now.

I've seen this effect before, but remain puzzled. It's possible the area with the stronger impression of the Memorial is what's left of the struck tongue of a second cent that was sheared off (an elliptical strike clip) and then fused to the underside of the die cap. It would likely have been a uniface strike. This would create an area slightly thicker than the rest of the cap and would therefore pick up a stronger image from the clash.
