    The U took a good hit and now it looks like a D. You can see where the metal used to be quite easily.

    First, welcome to the neighborhood, Brandon!

    If you're searching circulated coins, you're going to find many, many, many anomalies that look unusual and unlike the coins that were originally produced by the Mint. They could have nicks, dings, scratches, scrapes and stains that shouldn't be there, but 99.9999999999999999% of the time it doesn't mean that they are a Mint error.

    Welcome to CT Brandon. Like mentioned above, PMD, Post Mint Damage, meaning it happened after it left the mint, so NAV, No Added Value, which is a spender in many members minds, including mine.
    Keep up the search and good luck.

    If you can stand our humor and decide to stick around, you can learn a lot. A lot of new members don't but we say what we do to be honest as we have nothing to gain. I've only been here 5 1/2 years and I love it. Hopefully you will too.
