Could this be an error coin?

#1 Unread post by JanaSL » Mon Oct 07, 2019 10:47 am

Found this 1963 penny roll searching a few years back. Not sure what caused this on it but was wondering if this could be a error coin?

This "DOES NOT" look like an error coin to me.
I do not see how this could happen during the minting process......JMO

Thanks for letting me know! I can't understand what possibly could have done this to this coin in such a clean manner without distorting the actual image. I guess I thought that maybe the metal blanks was possibly messed up before it went onto the "die" process....who knows... interesting regardless

I agree if it was on one side then I could see a strike through but like this the coin was pressed between to objects post mint.
