I know very little about error coins or coins at all other than the research I’ve done in the past hour after emptying my bank. All I know is that this penny has been through something! I was hoping someone here may know whether that “something” occurred during the minting process or some time afterwards? I saw another post on here that a member said may have been caused by hammering another coin against it.
    If there are any questions I could answer or if there are details I should focus on to upload more pictures I’d be happy to do so

    Damaged.. Called a Vise Cent
    The Cent was put between 2 other Cents then crushed to leave the incused and reversed image on it. Such as the Lettering.

    Not double struck. Not a Mint Error.

    Geez, if the US Mint ever halts production of the cent, penny, copper, Zincoln or whatever you want to call the GD thing, I'm going to start drinking again!

    Interesting! Do people put coins in a vice to this end — superimposing a second image, or are vice-users just sometimes using coins as some sort of tool in combination with a vice?
