is from the coin being struck on a warn
or overused die.
There's no error on the cent.....
Yes.. Caused by a worn die.
Fred is starting to answer now!
should have said 'worn die'
@Jim sullivan I agree with an over used die. Philly is known to use their dies to the bitter end. And zinc cents can show all sorts of anomalies that are not errors. Die chips are many, if not most times, pre-ceded by a crack until the crack expands and allows for a chip to form. This is a very common occurrence on cents of zinc. Those are not die chips in the area you are looking at. IMHO.
