    Okay this is something I have never seen before. The absolute center of the penny has what at first glance looked to be a drill holes. After taking a more thorough like under magnification this hole 1: Is perfectly centered 2: unlike a drill bit the point is pertruding outward instead of inward as a drill bit would do. Is this some type of punch error.? The last two images are of lincolns cheak.
    Any idea gentlemen or women?

    I believe it is indicative of someone using a pin-point butane torch on it, but that's just me.

    as long as you can recognize it as damage then all is well.

    I didn't realize it was concave or convex or whatever on my cell phone .. nothing a spherical concave or convex head grinding bit wouldn't do.
