DEFDAM - Definitely Damage.
Not a mint error of any kind.
Coins are not printed.. They are struck/minted
Only paper currency is printed.. With ink
Your Cent was crushed between a vise after it left the San Francisco Mint
Look up the word Paredolia.. They look like letters but they are not.. Trust me my friend I have been studying and collecting mint errors for 34 years now.
Coins are minted, paper currency is printed, and stamps are also printed. There is no process in place to stamp any coin or paper money at the time of manufacture. This can only be done after it leaves the mint or the BEP and then it's considered damaged like your coin is.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Anthony!
Being a new collector, you need to learn as much as you can about the minting process before you start looking for errors. Otherwise, you'll be wasting a lot of time on damaged coins like this.
Here is a site that you should find helpful.
Here are some more topics for you to study.
Just think.. how could the mint do this? They don't do this to no coin. Watch videos on how the mint makes coins then you'll understand it all. But no it's not an error. You'll get farther knowledge if you listen and study.
Thanks Chris you been very informative. I will study up, new to the game and having fun with it.
