But i'm going to guess that it took a hit from the left up of the A which pushed metal down in a semi circle, making an illusion as if it belonged to the A.
If you look at coins without bias, and think of how it could have happened in the minting process you'd probably see it as the damage that it probably is.

Put it in another way.
If you went to a car dealership. And you were looking at a car that had a BIG dent in the front with the bumper, hood, grill bashed in. Do you think that was done WHILE it was being made, of which "being made" was on the assembly line up to the point it rolled off the assembly line (and not during transport, etc), or would you think it was "damaged" after it was "made" ?
That is just like the Minting process. Once the coin is "stamped" or minted, and falls into a BIG bag ... it is now Complete. Any marks, scraps, ding, gouges, and all other damage AFTER that is simply Damage, PMD - Post Mint Damage, etc.
So the question becomes with cars ... is any and all damage after they were pulled of the assembly line considered a "manufacturers error"?
or any damage after the assembly line considered "damage",
and thus any coins after they are minted considered "damage" ?
Your cent is worth one cent.
Welcome to CT.
Walking my dogs today I came upon this "damaged" quarter. I especially like the reverse. The eagle is flying (after being run over by a truck?!?) Thanks for the tip -- maybe I could put it in a flip and sell it for more than .25cents.
The cost of the mylar might cost you a penny so I hope you can get $.27 for it
Show and Tell.
Isn’t that what shelves are for?
or You can keep it in an "Oddities" Box and when friends come over you can pull it out and say "Hey, Look at this !".
There you go !!
