Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Also if you're having trouble posting an image then here's our guide for that. How To Post Images

This coin is damaged, probably ran over by a car, surely not a error. Worth a penny if you’re lucky enough to find a person to accept it! :)

Please get a penny out of your pocket, lay it on concrete and beat with a hammer. You will see how your coin was created.
