Image is kind of blurry. Would you be able to provide a crisper image.
Also, Coins are struck and paper is printed. (In my best paddyman98 “New Yorker” accent.lol)
If you are referring to the “1” in the year being misshapen it would be from a hit the coin took. Copper can be easily damaged.
Yes.. 1 Cent
It is all damage.
maybe a little better
a hit could distort a 1 like that? looks like and upside down 5
Pic is a little better. Sometimes pics are hard to get. Sometimes setting the phone on top of a glass and putting a coin on a table will give you a nice steady image. For my phone if you are too close it gets blurry. So I take it from a little farther away where the clarity is good then crop the image to increase the specific area. People tend to like full views of the front and back of the coin depending on what specifically you are looking for.
Yeah, it’s kind of crazy how much it can change but there have been quite a few similar posts to yours with the same results.
Yes it can get distorted. A hit will definitely do that.
I have seen many disfigured numerals and letters over the years. It is not a Mint Error. Just circulation wear and tear.
There is no reason for the US Mint to place an upside down numeral 5 in place of a numeral 1
It's damaged. Took a hit on the date. It has the classic appearance of a "roadkill" coin, such as one finds in asphalt parking lots.
Damaged in a parking lot it looks like.
