Apparently chewed up in the mechanical working. Might it be of value?

    Alex, what would you pay for it?

    Damage doesn't increase the value. It is just worth a cent, but in that condition it may not even be accepted.

    Then the damage done to this coin prior to it's release from the mint wouldn't be considered an error on the part of the mint?

    I guess that would depend upon my collections composition, and the depth of my funds. One man's ceiling is another man's floor. Tough question to answer!

    What evidence do you have that indicates that this error occurred at the Mint?

    The very markings on the coin itself. Surely this isn't the first time such markings have appeared on coins before; the mints mechanics should attest to this coins authenticity. No other evidence can be produce by me.

    @Alex55 You seem to have convinced yourself that this occurred at the Mint and have rejected any responses so I guess this case is closed. The only value it has is in the your eyes only. But I do have one question for what point in the process of making this coin do you think this could have happened? Because even though I have been collecting for only 52 years, I can't possibly explain your assumptions.

    I wonder what the reverse looks like ...

    So i can make similar ones to sell ...
    Edge was smashed/cut which also expanded it which means it didnt happen in the collar. And theres not much more that happens after the stamping phase of being minted.

    A piece of copper is just that, a piece of copper; my eyes hold no particular value for such. And I neither rejected nor condone the responses I receive for my questions. I simply weigh them for their value and move on. I refer to the value men in general place upon these items (coins) and the foolishness they invest their lives in pursuit of. All along dreaming of discovering riches they themselves could not manifest in their own lives, by way of hard work and intelligence. In as far as, "at what point in the process could this kind of damage have occurred", I could not answer that for you, for I am not adept with the minting process. However, I would imagine, a person with so little to do with themselves, whom can afford to invest fifty two years of their life (52)searching for what, the unattainable; would be knowledgeable enough to explain that to me. Evidently you cannot! I'd dare say, that if anyone is guilty of making assumptions, it is you, for having accused me of so much in so short a time. surely your mistaken as to whom it is I am, and those things that govern my life you could know nothing of the reasoning for my questions, and are at best, kidding yourself as to your own true nature.

    Alex... I appreciate your enthusiasm. However fact is, your cent has been abused in such a way that by design it was meant to fool an unsuspecting person..... Many years ago I had a Spanish Cobb coin that I knew sure as the sun would come up tomorrow was genuine. Many, many folks tried to gently dissuade me and I wouldn’t hear of it.... Well fact was that old Cobb coin was a cast copy. Thank goodness I learned and grew in the hobby because of it. That will happen for you as well. And I am sorry your cent is absolutely damaged.

    Obviously damage duh. PMD= post mint damage. Worth maybe 3/4 of a cent. :jimlad::rolleyes:o_O:dead::nailbiting::nurse: Coin collecting is different for everyone. An individual can be in it for the history, aesthetics, investment, or a combination of all 3. It is different for everyone. Coin collecting is not a waste of time. I have been collecting coins for 20 years. It will be a life long hobby for me. I curious as to what you do in your spare time ??? You can familiarize yourself with the coin making process. This coin has obvious damage and environmental damage. As you will discover...coin collecting is an endless process of learning. You will learn as you go.

    No value. Anyone that can't see that should be looking for something different to collect. Dear God, this is a stupid thread.

    Amazingly I asked one question, and am met head on by a pack of cowards whom hide behind their machines and hurl insults. In my presence you wouldn't utter a word.
