Same answer as your 2019 cent, just damage.

@4q, that is an odd cent to be sure. Rather than being struck through though, it looks more to me like it has been damaged. That silver colored metal should be the underlying zinc core visible when the copper plating was scratched off.

More post-strike damage. As in the 2017 D post, the coin didn't leave the striking chamber in this condition--not a strike through.

I really like your comments ( with all do respect ) from me been a beginner error coin collector this coin has not been scratched off or ground down or anything like it that silver color metal is not the underlying, just take a good look of the 2nd and 3th pic. 2nd pic has a concave form and 3rd pic. Has a bump on the centet of the coin that is made by the force of impact that silver color piece of metal it is stuck to the coin. Thank you for all your comments

Another post mint damaged coin. How/why doesn't really matter, damage is damage.

@4Q, well you asked us for our opinions and we have been unanimous in calling this damage rather than a mint error. For sure you don't have to agree with us--and with a cost of ownership being $0.01, of course hold onto this coin if you want.

Consider improving your error-identification skills by checking out the excellent website error-ref.com, which goes into great details as to the different types of mint errors. You could also go back through a page or so of threads from this subforum to see what we think about others' coins. Should you decide to ever get another opinion, such as by submitting this coin to a TPG for error authentication, please write back to this thread with those results. Thx.

This is part of the learning process. Answering the question: How could this happen at the mint? If it can't then the coin was altered post strike. You are seeing just damage to the coin. Looks like it was attacked by a Dremell tool. Damage to a coin is like a wrecked car. If it didn't happen at the factory, it happened on the road. So this is just damage to the coin. In time this coin will zinc rot away. Spend it before it becomes a copper colored Hershey's Kiss wrapper.

It's not a " Lincoln Memorial cent Struck of a Foreign Object" but rather, "A Foreign Object Struck on a Lincoln Memorial cent". The CENT came from the mint first, then the foreign object came later to damage the coin.

I think what you are saying is this coin is pushed in on the obverse side. If you could spin it, it would spin like a top. If that's the case, there is no way it came from the mint that way. It looks like it was pushed in and then someone took a wire wheel to it. Oh and I hope you stick around, there is a lot of experience on this site.
