    Hey guys. Question for you all. Do you think this penny left the mint this way?. If so, what can cause this penny to look like this. Or did someone just have a lot of free time on their hands.

    You can take a pair of wire cutting pliers and make many more like that if you wanted.

    Definitely PMD.

    I found this on YouTube. It explains how the US quarter is minted. I know yours is an LMC not a quarter but the process is the same. Hopefully after watching this you can ask yourself "How could this have happened at the mint?" when looking at marks on coins and it will be easier for you to tell the difference between PMD and an actual error.

    Mr. Ed,
    I would not be surprised if you found Jimmy Hoffa's dentures metal detecting. Seriously you have made quite a haul as a detectorist! Morning again, its 3:13 am here.
