    This is not a Mint error. The raised metal on both X'es has been displaced from the deep gouges next to each one.

    Someone took a very sharp blade and cut into the copper at an angle to make an X..
    That technique makes it appear raised.

    I agree about the X's being damage from a cut. But your coin also has Lamination errors on the reverse. Some metal looks like it has flaked away and left the pitting.

    Shrews1994 KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

    Your coin has a lamination peel though.

    What a shame it was defaced. Thdtbis a nice lamination error on the reverse.

    it's a 1911. So it's worth keeping nevertheless ...
    ... 108 years old ...
