Does it? Is that a "Y" in LIBERTY where a "T" should be?

Here is a thread I created on the subject
Many Cents have Misaligned Die Strikes. It is a common occurrence. That has nothing to do with the altered T in LIBERTY.
Individual letters are not punched into each die. The letters and designs are all on the master hub. The mint uses the master hub to make master dies. The master die is used to make working hubs and the working hub makes the working die which strikes the coin. The only way for it to be a Y is for the master to have an error. And if the master hub has an error, then every coin minted would show it.
But copper is a soft metal and subject to numerous dings in circulation. Hope this helps
