    I found this while looking through a lot I purchased. At first I thought the edges had been filed off, but there are no file marks and the issue is uniform around the entire coin, both obverse and reverse. If it’s not an error, any ideas on what could have caused it? The uniformity is what’s throwing me off. Thanks for helping me learn.

    The coin was secured in a holder. That area around the rim was under the holder.

    So you’re saying when it was placed in the holder the rim was pressed down to accommodate the holder?

    Neat looking but damaged after it left the Mint.

    Think of the cent having been encased in something similar to this:


    The cent was meant to be in whatever its encasement was permanently but whomever found it likely destroyed whatever it was in to get it out so they could spend the cent.
