USA 5 cent error coin

Recommended Posts

Is this an error coin? It's a 1985 USA 5 cent. I can post some close-ups if anyone wants to study it... It really looks like it was made like this as opposed to being damaged afterwards as the lettering all seems to blend with the curves and bends. I would love your opinions.

I think it was damaged well after minting. The folds and such would have letters on top if they were present when the coin was stamped.

Agreed. Looks like someone with a hammer and chisel had some fun. I remember hammering out pennies when I was a kid.
