I found this 1997 D penny today at work and was immediately intrigued. It is about 1/8" thick with a very high rim and smaller than a normal penny. The "In God we trust" inscription can be read on the inside of the rim of the coin. I am just curious if this is a mis struck coin or something else. Any help or explanations are greatly appreciated. Very new to collecting coins.

@and, first welcome to CCF. Second, that is mechanical damage as noted by the othersócould be a Dryer Coin or spooning.

It's a damaged coin - as already noted could be a Dryer Coin.
