1995 P Penny

As you can see there is a double die crack on the reverse, but there is also some spots that seem “wrinkled” on the reverse close to the die cracks. Also the obverse is quite odd with the large area that resembles a large wrinkle. If you could tell me what you know about this kind of variation, that would be great.

    Well, I don't think that is a die crack, looks more like a linear plating blister. Unfortunately, it looks like the coin was subjected to enough heat for the zinc core to begin melting and warping. This is just damage.

    Agree, especially on the obverse.

    Definitely PMD.... likely heat as mentioned above. Thank you for the excellent pictures. Cheers, RickO
