Circulation wear and tear
Looks like a pair of side cutters.
run over by a rail road ...
how old is this cent?
was it received from the Mint like this or did it go into circulation ?
... trying to make you think ...
Everything you described can be attributed to the same cause. Think about that. While not the same instance, the same cause.
Look at this coin again. I'll give you a hint. Why does LIBERTY look different to you?
Well @Collecting Nut I would be lying if I acted like I knew what you are trying to explain to me. Kinda blew my mind for a minute lmbo
I am going to say It was struck over a another coin. On the reverse ,it is hard to tell in the photo, but there are hints of lettering where it reads "one cent"
How far off am I ? Lolol ;-)
everything else you see on the coin
is damage/contact marks from the
piece being in circulation.
If you can't tell the difference between a Mint error and post-mint damage, then you should stop looking for errors and start learning how coins are made.
Oh boy! Everything you see is damage from different sources. Some of it is from circulation wear and tear. The B in LIBERTY has a blob in the bottom half of the B. Due to the wear it's difficult to say but that it usually caused by a die chip, which is very minor even if newly minted.
I would suggest doing some research into errors if that field interests you. Read and look at examples. Go to your LCS (local coin shop) and shows. Talk to dealers. All these things will increase your knowledge and give you a better understanding of how they are created.

Ok I apologize for seeming so uneducated. There are so many varieties of errors just never know @cpm9ball ball thank you for your input
but all the errors I pointed are raised above the surface without showing any forced trama. And the D looks doubled to me. And the top d looks rotated to the right from bottom to top. I am most likely wrong according to everyone opinion. I appreciate all of the experts on this forum and have the upmost respect for y'all. With that being said could you explain these things I have just noted. Nothing i asked about in this quote is as I would say not a scratch or indentation, but raised above the surface. Is this a common error?
Brutal honesty. I love it when needed to be thank you sir. Have a great day.
There are thousands and thousands and thousands of ways that a coin can be damaged while in circulation. That is why you should learn about the minting process before you start looking for errors & varieties.
Ok thank you sir.
