1940 Lincoln Cent Error?

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone :) . I am a brand new member, here. I have this 1940 Lincoln Cent and I'm not sure if this is an error that happened at the mint or in somebody's garage. Could these indentations have been produced at the mint? I have searched high and low and cannot find any resources citing such markings. Thanks for your help.

Nice find. Looks to me like someone mounted it in some sort of tool or device that has a vise-like grip to it.

Thanks for the input on my coin, I guess it's just a novelty. Of course, I was hoping it could have been something caused by the mint. I do appreciate the help! I'm going to post another cent I have which features errors, I am confident are not post mint in nature. I will title the topic, "Struck through grease error ~ Missing Indian"

 

Again, thanks for the input on the 1940 cent. :)
