After a number of months on this site learning quite a bit about coins, I decided to start looking closely at them tonight. I started with the ones from the 40’s. I came across two interesting one, this being one of them. It looks like a piece of material is missing right above the date right up to the rim of the coin. I’m thinking there may have been a piece of material/chip stuck to the die which caused the indention when the coin was pressed. Any ideas on how this happened and what this would be categorized as?

    Nice find.
    That coin is called a Struck Thru Error. You could say struck thru debris or struck thru foreign object. Just plain struck thru works.

  5. Doesn't look like post mint damage.... looks like something small formed east of the 6 at the edge of the rim...(just trying to learn)
