    Even a damaged coin inside a mint set or proof set has limited value. For example, coins that are damaged by the plastic sealer in mint sets are worth less than undamaged coins.

    No, this isn't damaged. The zinc core was exposed by the strike, as tensile forces caused the thin copper plating to split.

    what it makes me wonder though is how does a coin like this one make it out of the mint into circulation? i was trying to be funny with this pic but i really do want to know how ?

    This coin probably didn't make it into circulation. It was probably retreived from a mint bag or a bulk shipment to a Federal Reserve Bank or armored car service.
