I found this in my change today. I thought it was a penny made into jewelry then taken out but a close look at the side profile shows copper. Is this a die issue ? Any ideas ?
Welcome to CoinTalk Bill! I think it might have been mounted to a piece of jewelry and removed... not sure though...
Hmm..I guess it could have been jewelry..But its a 1991 penny so I dont know why it would be used for jewelry. Im sure someone else will have an answer soon.
the "E" in "United" looks crushed, is that right ? and thank you for the welcome !
It took a ride in a commercial clothes dryer. the edge has started to roll over onto the reverse. Post mint damage.

I agree with Richard, this coin looks damaged.
yea, I kind of figured but there was a small part of me that wanted it to be something else. Thanks for the replies.
