Hey Guys,

        
 


I found a very weird 1985-D penny while I was working.  It's an off center penny to start with, HOWEVER, the front with the Lincoln bust also has the reverse side indented over it almost completely.  It's only missing a small part of the bottom left corner of the monument, and half the N and the whole T in ONE CENT.   ALSO, the back side is a normal penny, except it also has an indent of the monument stamped diagonally across it very lightly.  Anyone have any ideas about what its value may be? I've looked on the internet and can't seem to find a coin similar to it.

it's a damaged cent, someone sandwiched some together & hammered them
