    This cent has taken more hits than a baseball bat but I noticed the entire O is leaning towards the left, can a hit do this?

  2. "The bright area at 2 o'clock of the O is a hit that has removed part of the coin metal. This makes the O "look" fatter on the left and give it the appearance of leaning left.

    Agree with Stoneman/John.
    Lots of circulation damage adds to visual perception issues with a coin.

    It got run over by a fleet of buses. Copper is a soft metal, it moves all around very easily when subjected to forces.
