    I got this 1980 D penny from Walmart today and it struck me as odd first its a little off center and the ridge not sure what its called is really high. Second the word TRUST is alot skinnier than the IN GOD WE its hard to tell very well in this pic but just curious if anyone can give me a little more info 20200801_153055.jpg

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    It's a misaligned die (MAD). When the the dies were installed in the press, the obverse die was wasn't quite lined up with the reverse. That's why the rim is thicker on one side. Sorry, but it's not considered special and adds no extra value
