    I would rather someone else answer this but I think it's a pool of die? I just don't know why the reverse is affected. Going to read up about it tomorrow

    That is a genuine die break, also known as a cud.

    A portion of the face of the obverse die broke off. When striking, the metal of the planchet is forced upward to fill the void in the die, causing weakness on the opposite face.

    This is a nice example, and I’d say it’s worth about $45 - $75. It’s amazing that this was found in circulation. No doubt, it has remained in circulation until now, because nobody knew what it was or recognized the collector value.

    That for sure is an anti-parking lot find usually seen around here. Authentic. Great find.

    I know there is a website devoted to cuds. I suppose there's a slim chance someone discovered one in a new roll or bag, in which case we'd know the date.

    I wish I knew the date and wondered if there is any way to determine the approximate year mine is. Was going to read up on that today 😊

    If you look at coins from various dates/decades you will see slight variations from each era.

    Your cent looks bronze to me, and the style of the portrait reminds me of the 1970s or 80s. If not zinc, then 80s means 1982 or earlier.

    So, you can probably figure out a 10 or 12 year range for starters.

    I didn't want to do the drop test so I weighed it. It's 3.10 grams. I'm thinking you're right.. 70's or 80's.

    The style of the "FG" initials on the reverse indicates that this coin has the Memorial reverse design variety 4 (RDV-004), which means that it was struck between 1974 and 1985.

    Since you know that it's not zinc, you can narrow it down to 1974-1982.

    If a retained cud version exists then that would be one way to confirm it.
