    I bought a bag of 5000 pennies from my bank and this one was literally the last one I pulled from the bag. The top of the coin has a smooth spot on the top that is slightly recessed and on the back it is slightly raised. The smooth part doesn't smear over the outer rim of the coin. 20210226_093437 (1).jpg 20210226_093504 (1).jpg 20210226_093525 (1).jpg 20210226_093514 (1).jpg There is slight doubling on the O and N on the reverse. Is this damage from the mint or man made?

    I see no doubling on the letters but you do have a couple fine nice priceless errors on that coin put it in a 2x2 and protect it well.

    Correct.. That's a massive Cud!
    It's on the Reverse so most likely the Reverse Die was used as the Hammer Die and it broke off at that location. The mint do alternate Dies at times.

    I just looked over it again and your right about the "E" being barely visible running through the I and N. Just don't what to do with it now. Thanks again for the keen eye.

    That's a nice cent. Flip worthy for sure. Have you looked at Ebay Coins to see if someone has sold one before? Probably worth a check.
