My heart says S, my mind says D.
It's definitely worth keeping. You should get it looked at by someone who specializes in error coins, maybe check out CONECA or Wexler's Coins, just to be sure. Get a close-up of that mint mark, too.
@paddyman98 care to elaborate?
At first I though it was a Indirect Image Transfer (Ghosting) but I wasn't sure. When Fred stated damaged on both sides I felt like the issue must be post mint also. How? I don't know.
I changed my previous answer.
flattened, we can't tell 100% exactly
how, but it doesn't matter, imo.
Probably put in a vise - but who cares ?
The front is flatten and the back isn't badly damage.
Yea my bad I thought I put 1964, I just notice that. Thanks!
That was my first thought also.
So as we all can see the image on the front is very flat. However the image that appears on the back of the lincoln cent has a tremendous amount of hight and depth to it . It looks like a topographical map for lack of a better word. Although the front is in pores shape the back is quite nice when compared to the front every one has asked for close up photos of the Lincoln cent so I've done my best here you go
