    Hi guys, I'm a new collector and new member here and I'm seeking expert advice on the following penny and trying to figure out what may have caused the damage.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    Lord know what happened to this coin in its 121 years of life. All I can tell you is that it didn't come from the mint like that. It was damaged afterwards.

    DEFDAM - Definitely Damaged.. Are you betting with someone about how it occurred? The person who did it probably passed away decades ago! :dead:

    I think Annie Oakley hit it with bird shot after someone threw it up in the air for her.

    It doesn't matter what happened to this coin. What does matter is it's damaged. PMD.
