    Hi @StoneCold334, pictures are absolutely necessary for accessing what the issue of your coin is. Welcome to CT!

    Can’t really tell from that one…it needs to be full image, meaning just the coin, no table top…or a close-up of LIBERTY and DATE.

    From what I can see is looks to be PMD. That is a 1968-D. 1968 was the last year for that master hub so there wasn’t great definition by this time anyway.
    See if you can get us some close-ups…imo…Spark

    The photo is very blurry when I enlarge it. I can’t see LIBERTY at all but the 8 in the date, I’m not sure of, but it appears to be filled with metal. This is normal for a die crack. Just need larger and clearer photos, especially in those areas.

    Yes it is messed up, but..
    The issue on your Cent is damage after it left the US Mint. Somehow the letter and digit took a hit and displaced the copper a bit

    Not a mint error of any kind.
