    I may have posted this coin back a long time ago, but the pictures were horrible and everyone just told me it was probably pmd. Which may still be the case... but I’m able to get much clearer pictures now so I wanted to see if anyone saw anything besides just damage now. The rest of the rim is remarkably smooth.

    Thanks for mentioning me in your title.
    That was funny.

    Looks to be another coin that was somehow pressed hard against it. That's the image of another coin. But that occurred after the coin was minted.
    People out there love to create issues such as your coin just to create confusion among new collectors seeking errors. But once you understand the minting proccess and how mint errors really occur you will know quickly when it is not an error.

    Does the "R" in TRUST and the "N" in CENT look to exhibit signs of lamination or strike impairment to you?

    I thought of that but it is not. A few things are observed. The location of the issue. See how the damage on both sides are opposite to each other? Some tool was used to create the issue. Also the Cent in that spot bulges out a bit so the coin is not perfectly round. Evidence of force used in that area. And a Lamination would be on the planchet before the strike. so when the upraised rim is created it would still be formed properly. You can see the Rim is damaged in the area so it is not a lamination.
