@Inspector43 said. I'm sorry. It has been altered.

The Circle you see is the rim of the penny. You can also make out the mintmark, the In God We Trust and of course the word Liberty.

Suggestion.. We have a Error Coins forum here on CoinTalk. Any future threads you may have concerning possible Mint Errors you should create your threads there. Find out what yu have first then worry about value last.
