    Morning everyone, got lucky and was able to get a $50 bag of pennies from the banks coin machine and found this about halfway through with some nice Wheat Pennies. Wanted to see what you thought. I researched quite a bit and just don't have enough experience on whether this is what they call PMD or possibly a die cap error. Penny weighs 2.70 grams which makes me think it is to heavy or very light. As you can see Obverse has little detail and the Reverse is clear. It has a definite rounded or button curve to the Obverse. I can make out they "Y" in liberty and the "1" in the date under the scope and that is about it. Thanks so much in advance and I hope you all have a great weekend.

    An altered Obverse. Not a mint error of any kind.
