    Is this just PMD? if not what is it and if so what do you think happened? As a rule of thumb can genuine minting errors be on both sides?

    PMD and the possible reasons are endless. Just be happy with PMD and spend it.
    Welcome aboard The CT Train. Hope you learn much while you enjoy the ride. :)
    Errors can be multi sided but not that common.

    In response to your question about genuine mint errors - there are a BUNCH of them and yes, they can affect both sides (or for that matter, the entirety) of the coin. Coins struck on the wrong planchet and/or with the wrong metal, clipped coins, clashed coins (where the reverse die has an image of the obverse, and vice versa, due to the dies coming together without a planchet between them). Google is your friend on this question - but I will share this link from the ANA which has some good pictures in addition to background info:

    A lot of people go a head and spend coins like this. I have been keeping all the damaged coins like this one, in jars; one each for each denomination of coins. Will a bank take them if I want to deposit them in my account?

    Yes, you're right, it's PMD! I wish others that come on here can recognize it as easily as you. Believe it or not, many of them would have trouble with this one.

    The best way to learn to tell the difference between mint errors and post mint damage is the learn how coins are made. That way you can more easily tell the difference.

    The irregularities on the piece that you posted could not be caused by the meeting of two dies. The only way that some resembling that could happen would be if a foreign object was between the dies when the coin was struck. The nature of the problems with your coin precludes. that.

    Do like I would . Roll them up and cash them in . I did that with some of my Coins found while Metal Detecting . ( after a cleaning of course )

    Yes, that’s why there is a reported coin shortage. Coins are not getting out into circulation because people are not getting out in circulation. When they do, they often pay with plastic. Some people think they can catch Covid by handling money, which is another reason what coins and currency are getting used.
