1945 Multiple Struck Cent?

Another one from my Facebook group I’m stumped on… I’m thinking it’s PMD, but it’s weirdly “struck” in a not mirrored way, making me question my assumption. Anyone have an idea if this is a real error and a possibility of it’s value? TIA!

Sorry the pics aren’t the greatest but this was the best they gave me to work on

    I was thinking the same thing… vise job possibly? I’m just curious as to how whoever did this managed to make the “strike” face the correct way

    Over- struck by false/counterfeit dies
    This type of overstrike occurs on all denominations all years all series -
    they’re all fake over- strikes on genuine host coins

    Thank you sir! Was hoping for you to comment… I’ll deliver the unfortunate news to the poster

    I'm not really sure what you mean by this, what I see is a normal Lincoln cent that has two circles cut into the right side of the obv. It looks like something was pressed into the coin, no idea of what or how exactly. However, I can see no way that happened during the minting process so that only leaves PMD. Hopefully one of the guys more versed in mint errors will know for sure.

    That’s what I saw when I first saw the coin, but if you zoom in on the photo, you can see the details of more strikes on the surface. Especially if you look above the real date, there’s a second fake date above it. It’s difficult to see with the quality of the photos but it’s there
