    multiple stamped penny

    this penny appears to be all copper and not zinc. it has been stamped multiple times with the "tails" or memorial side on both sides. no real sign of the heads actually being on it. any ideas? any value? thanks for looking

    That is strange, I don't see any evidence of a heads side either. Nice find

    I agree with the professor. In the first photo you see a negative impression of a back of a penny. Looks like a couple pennies got smashed together.

    the first photo also shows the head side with the negative back side stamped into it.

    Not a mint error. It is what is known as a vice job, where two or more coins are squeezed together. A coin can not receive a backwards incuse impression from the die, only from another coin.

    From time to time, I engage the child within and stack and or glue cents and other denomination coins onto the railroad tracks.
    I have many that turned out just like yours.
    Not saying some man-child is responsible for that coin.. Lol

    An example.. A quarter and a nickel and a dime all got squished by the choo choo..
    They don't always deform from their round shape.

    I'm thinking "Train Tracks" as well, I have a jar full of "Railroad Money" I picked up over the years on the job.

    probably man made somehow, just never seen one like it before. most train coins are flattened out quite a bit more from I had seen

    The trick is to glue multiple cents together.
    The two in the middle of a stack of six... With some luck will press together at the same thickness as a regular penny, while retaining their shape.
    I only know this because I have tracks in my backyard and that makes it too easy to deal with trial and error.
