Coins are never printed. They are minted/struck.. Paper currency is printed.
This is a Canadian Leaf
Wasn't there a Pokémon that kind of looked like this?
Except for a slight difference in weight (1964 Canadian cent 3.24g 1964 US cent 3.11g. Did it weigh heavy?)
there would be no way to tell if a cent was minted on a Canadian planchet. Are you saying your damaged cent was struck over a Canadian cent? The US doesn't mint coins for Canada, someone tossed a Canadian cent in the hopper at the mint 54 years ago and you just happen to discover it in your pocket change?
These foreign planchet You Tube videos need to mention that this is a 1 in a billions type thing, and no, you don't have a coin minted on a foreign planchet in your change jar.
The most disturbing thing about this whole thread is you and Bellman knowing the Pokémon stuff. I vaguely remember my kids talking about a Level 33 Jiggly-Puff at one point but decided not to ask about the details
just look at it again..yes I meant struck on a Canadian cent. or over a Canadian cent. i honestly believe the lead edge and the EL is Elizabeth and i believe it is possible. not likely but very possible. I would like to say even as the kitty cat face it looks very similar to the edge of the lead and it doesn't have to be aligned. notice please the leaf edge goes completely under the letter a... meaning the a was printed over the image or damage as it were.
I had only one kid, but I was in a relationship with a woman whose son was right at the "sweet spot" for a Pokémon obsession. I learned a lot. That young man is now a Ph.D. in medical nanotechnology. One of the Pittsburgh schools.
No. I don't think so.
You would see more raised detail and on both sides.
As stated.. What you see is incused so it's damage.
google images ...
If this was a Canadian coin put in a US Mint press, you first should be able to find a Canadian Cent that had the exact markings you have identified in the *exact* same locations.
You would also be able to see a lot more Canadian Cent identifiers on it.
If you did find a Canadian Cent with these same markings in the same location, you could them overlay the two images to show the direct correlation between the two.
Copper is relatively soft. All kinds of designs, letters, anything can become imprinted (or even raised) on a coin as damaged as this from a million different sources.
well.. i think it will. because that edge that looks like part of the Canadian leaf which looks.like a Pokemon.
well it is obviously under the last A in America. the e pluribus Unum is all messed up... can't find a vdb... the top has the letters EL like Elizabeth but off center... do maybe someone bought copper blanks... and in those blanks maybe some Canadian coins which were error coins or something got tossed in. i swear the coin itself does not look damaged like you see coins with deep grooves... or lines... it just looks like a quarter then off and slightly off center Canadian coin underneath and well that's what I think it is. i could be wrong. but it was cool to think it even if i am wrong.
