Whatcha think of the reverse on this cent? The picture with 2 has a side by side of a normal cent.

Please tell me if this looks like what it looks like to me? Or do I just have a dirty mind? Sorry butt (pun intended) I can't help but laugh...

Yeah, the only part that had me wondering was how pristine the obverse is of the coin.
Hi, Rachel --

Without seeing the coin in-hand, I'm 99% confident this is indeed PMD -- it looks like the coin was hammered onto a gritty sidewalk or something. From everything I can tell in this photo, those marks came along after the coin/design was struck.

Thank you for the photos and for reaching out... Best wishes!

I'm working on getting better pictures for ya.

This is pmd right? It's just strange because it's pretty smooth. I rinsed it in acetone to see if someone may have coated it with something like a clear coat nail polish or something and it's still the same. Is it a vise cent?
Hello Rachel,

WOW, I think this might be a doubled die, but I'm not sure as I pull in and out of the zoom ratio on the reverse photo.

I suggest submitting a high-resolution photo of the reverse to John Wexler of the folks at CONECA for possible attribution.

John Wexler:

Good luck!
