it appears that the center of the coin is raised above the rest of the field, right? I've seen the reverse of this before (parts of the field near the rim are raised), but I don't remember if it was a striking issue or pmd...

What I am trying to do is show that the coin looks like it was struck on anther coin

It is not raised near the rim, rather it rises up which the last 2 original pixs show

There is a circular mass raised below the penny

 attached more pix

The final one is very telling on how the copper seems stretched - it undulates and the steps are warped in the middle of the coin

There are lots (and lots and lots) of cents with concave obverses and convex reverses throughout the 1970’s and even into the early years of Zincolns. I own many many of them. Some years got pretty ridiculous. 1984 comes to mind.

The centers are both convex though it appears to me.  I'm gonna spend the grading fee.  Figure my YFI coins upside can pay for that this month:)  I'll post results when they return...

Right on Kevin!

The warping of the base of the steps is from incomplete filling of the design.  That is also what is causing the weakness in the rook above columns 4, 5, & 6. I can't say about anything else.
