If that cent wasn't so beat up, I'd swear someone intentionally tried to remove the 1. ...Looks like damage to me. With all the other damage on the coin and a gash being right where the 1 should be, I think it's just a beat-up oddity.

1982 is when they began using zinc pennies instead of copper so definitely not 1990.

That is just a beat up coin, not an error. Looks like it had a rough life!

It does sorta look like that doesn't it? It's definitely been through the ringer! Thanks for taking a look!
