    If you notice the push dent on the back side,


    since a DIE has flat faces then this was done after it left the mint.
    So the front / obverse has the section that was pushed in, and thus pushed out the back side. Thus is is simply damage.

    but the GOOD news is, it's worth at least 1 cent. I has not lost it's face value since being minted !!

    Someone hit it with a blunt object. See how it flattened out on the Reverse side. Damaged :(

    At first glance ir looks like a strike through, but the deformed reverse tells it is an after market modification. Otherwise known as post mint damage. Meow was fooled at first glance at a number of coins like this when CRH.

    This is a reason why we always ask for a obverse and reverse photo. Sometimes you may think there is nothing going on with the opposite side, but there may be something we can pick up on to give a definitive answer.

    I noticed the backside which indeed is why I posted both sides

    Sure is an odd shape/mark for PMD, but that's what it is.
