I vote for a mint error. I do not know of a way to produce what I see on the picture at home, or on the train tracks, etc.

 

Not my field of interest but I would agree with BKB. How to do it? :ninja:

Cannot do it like that. Look at the letters in the depressed area and the detail of the design in the depressed area.

 

I honestly have never tried :ninja:, so I don't know.

 

But I have used those press a penny machines. And they completely squish a 1 cent coin, but even on those rolled coins you can see a distorted image of what it use to be. I will guess that stamping an edge of a coin will somewhat distort and level down the relief of design elements but not destroy them (is that's what you meant).

 

But what part of the minting process would produce such defect?
