    Not an error. It is a dryer coin.

    There is no telling what might have caused it, but to me, it is not a Mint error.

    I agree that it looks like a dryer coin, but the gouge along the reverse perimeter doesn't look like it could have happened in a dryer. Have you ever seen this before on a dryer coin?

    I assume by in-between columns, you are referring to the extra lines above and beside the columns. These are the roof and rear columns, shown to give perspective to the memorial, Also, in the center, is a seated Abe. Other than that it is a coin that has numerous plating blisters and looks to have been trapped in a rotating cylinder, such as a dryer, and what looks like a deep gouge along the perimeter of the obverse

    Well acid didn't seem to be appropriate all the copper is there. I don't know what to think about that ring. It cold have been pinched in the dryer with another coin/ Maybe?

    My guess is a combination of worn die, circ. wear and PMD. The lettering on both sides are very close to the rim, all the details are smushed and a dryer could have been the culprit for the damage. On the rev., the ring is a result of the worn die…no place left for the metal to flow at strike…jmho…Spark

    High heat damage to a thinly coated Zincoln. Certainly deserves a quick spend or bury it someplace before it deteriorates completely.

    Cud's involve the rim and from there extend into the fields.They do not start on the central devices

    It couldn't come out of the minting process looking like that so it is not a mint error. Post mint damage IMO. Jim

    That was my thought too. As thin as the plating is on the new cents is highly unlikely mechanical PMD would have left it intact.
