Not a Mint Error
Start looking at and categorizing all of your change that you come across.
And realize that 99.9% of everything you think is "different" is different because it is being damaged and wear from circulation and everything else. Remember the older a coin gets the more circulation wear it can get.
Every pick up a cent from the ground?
from a parking lot .. with a lot of scraps on it?
Damage is unlimited from it being indirectly damaged to it being directly damaged by someone for some reason that you may never understand. In the past I would use coins to test things or to buffer things of more value as coins are cheaper than other things and still worth face value no matter how much damage you impose on it.
Look at those circular holes ... looks someone, for some really good reason, put it in a machine that slightly smashed it and put a divit in it at some point in it's 77 years of circulation. But who really knows right ?
Cents because it's damaged, really.
Another way to look at it: how could it have been minted
at the US Mint like that?
It's not a Doubled Die Variety.. Just damage
