Is this post mint damage like people are saying? Looks like a double stamped rotated die Lincoln her

    It looks like a die cap. They usually have multiple strikes on one side and the other side looks normal or close to normal.

    Looks like a die cap. I wish I could find one of those in a coin roll!

    Can you post the reverse also?

    The reverse side is like a normal penny with nothing unusual to note. But I still can if you wish

    Looks like there was a very thin die cap that fell off of the obverse die and got struck into this coin. Where the cap included the letters of LIBERTY the added thickness there got impressed into this coin, leaving you with one raised LIBERTY and one incused LIBERTY. There would be similar indentations elsewhere.
    Very nice error!

    Nice Die cap strike but a shame about the spot under LIBERTY. Congrats on this find.
