      The 1963 cent was altered outside the Mint, either by acid or by buffing.  The soft blurring of the design is not something you'd see on both faces of a coin generated by a coining press.

      I have placed some photos in the "unsolved mysteries" photo album. First up is a 1963 (with undecipherable mint mark) cent. My gut instinct tells me this is post mint damage, possibly by acid, but the distortion on the reverse is unlike any acid attack I have ever seen... so, my questions are:

      1. Is this thing a legit striking error or post mint damage??

      2. Can you explain your answer to question #1, so I can learn from this??
