    1982 Lincoln that shows on the top of the word GOD is pushed down and on the word TRUST the UST look larger than the TR. On reverse the same affect is on AMERICA and the initials FG are illegible.
    Sorry of the poor quality but top horizontal line of E in CENT is seperated from the vertical. Doesn't appear like it in pic but it is and that is not a die chip but blob of plating in pic. Any information is appreciated..

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Possibly a dryer coin. The rim is starting to curl over the edges of the obverse and rev. Also the mushy, washed out features.

    Could be some other type of damage, but whatever it is, the coin didn't leave the mint like that

    Meow thinks they did leave the mint like that. As Meow recently found three 1982 pennies just like it. Meow thinks they where made from worn out dies. At first Meow thought grease, but there is no radiating pattern on them. It looks like a they where struck through a sheet of paper, but that is unlikely. If you guys like, Meow can dig them out of the Cat Hoard and add pics as Meow saved them.

    The dang cat also put pennies in the peanut butter. Don't bother!

    I agree with @Oldhoopster, but in any case, it's just a worn cent with no additional value.

    Only worth face value, damaged or not, error or not, with or without peanut butter.
