    When I hold it at just the right angle, the first digit looks like a 2. Anyway, thought I'd share. The shaded area is not glue, I gave it a bath in acetone. nodateobverse.jpg nodatereverse.jpg

    Would love to see a few more photos of the date with some lighting changes.

    the date would be where the
    surface disruption is - but I can't
    tell from the one photo if it's from
    damage (scraped) or a slight chance
    it's from a filled die.

    Based on the one photo,and the verdigris
    and change of surface texture, I lean
    toward damage.

    It is a 2000 cent. I did take more photos this morning, hopefully a better look at it.

    I agree that this looks very much like a struck through grease coin. I originally thought PMD but don’t see zinc.

    IMO struck January 2nd, 2000. 1st shift. Operator still hungover. Couldn't remember what year it was. How's that for great detail? LOL

    Are you sure about that? Often the mint runs 7 days a week.
