    Looks to be a dryer coin, a coin that has been spinning in a hopper mechanism for a while.

    Welcome rookie, that would have to be post mint damage (PMD). There's no way for it to have been struck like that.

    A dryer coin would have deformed rims and both sides would have unusual wear (not just one side like the OP states). My guess is someone with a sander or other device ground off portions of the reverse.

    I guess it's what you're familiar with that you makes you think what someone could have used. As a machinist my first thought was a spotfacer tool.:smile

    Yes, well could be.I am sure there are many other types, but the idea is the same :)
