calling on @paddyman98
Almost looks like a massive Cud??
It's not raised. Not a cud.
It's actually an indent.
Thanks @paddyman98 but how did it happen?
Thank you @Collecting Nut ... but how did it happen?
You’re welcome. Lay another cent by the indentation and see if it fits. It could be several reasons as to what happened.
Thank you @Collecting Nut ... I did place another cent in the area, but it didn't seem to quite line up. You said it could be other reasons, could you tell me a couple of them? Thank you...
Since it didn’t line up it could be a defective planchet. That would be my best guess. At any rate, I’d call that coin a keeper so protect it.
…the defective planchet didn’t quite fit into the collar and ended up being struck at a wonky angle.
I’m open to better theories…Spark
If it was struck without the collar in place, it should look more like this.
That's exactly what happened. I have one like it. Everyone thought it was damage until Mike Diamond weighed in.
When did @mikediamond "weigh in"? I must have missed it
...so, if a coin falls on the floor at the mint and is scuffed around by workers shoes, that is an error coin?
Of course not but that’s not what happened with the OP’s coin.
This was years ago on another forum that he ID'd mine.
What did he ID it as?
Separate names with a comma.
