    I found this 1918 wheat in a roll of coins recently. I noticed that the "c" in America on the reverse was missing. The "a" is also weakly struck. Any suggestions? Is it worth anything? Thanks IMG_20200122_151514582_BURST000_COVER_TOP (1).jpg IMG_20200122_151629289_BURST000_COVER_TOP (1).jpg

    First, welcome to the neighborhood, Alex!

    It looks like the missing "C" is the result of a grease-filled die. It happens all of the time. It's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. ~ Chris

    Thanks for the quick response. So it is not worth having it graded or authenticated?

    Welcome to CT, Alex. I think your coin is not worth the cost of grading. There are lots of contact marks on the obverse, and minor struck through grease doesn’t add too much value. However, the coin is surely a keeper.

    Welcome also and I would agree with the above posts - not worth the cost, but definitely a keeper.
