Hey everyone,

Once again, I've ran into something peculiar while coin roll hunting. This time I am not sure if it's a mint error or if it's damage from circular. HEEEEEEEEELP PLEASE!



You can definitely make out some of the Monticello on the reverse.

They think they will make a mint error. But when they realize the can't, they spend it. (They don't want to miss out on the original investment in the coin. LOL)

at first glance of the first image, I thought it was a knock-out slug from a steel electrical box. But the next image says that it is a intentionally damaged nickel.
