I was wondering what type of error this might be on the reverse and what kind of value if any?

Damage, if you're aakiasabout the sent in the center.
Well maybe not, is the letter I struck over the indent?
99% sure the diagnosis is damage don't know of any error that would do that. The pic is a little distorted so I can be absolutely sure but logic and the actual possibilities exsisting say damage
Walter.. Pick one -
Could be a Lamination error. (De-laminated)
No big premium.. Those are common on wheat Cents. $1.00 - $2.00
Here is an example from my collection
That would be a cool lamination error, seems pretty unique, but u haven't seen to many, doesn't look like the one I have, it's from 42 I believe. Anyway, I hope you find good news, let me know what you find out.
I suspect this either a lamination or a strike through. I am thinking that the edges of the feature have been worn smooth so that it does not appear as quite what would be expected on either one. I think it is not damage because there appears to be no anvil effect on the Obverse.
There are a lot of metal groves/etches/grinding on the lower left going from the surface into the cavity along with the smooshing of the letters. You can see the remnants of the M actually being pushed up out of position. So I would think it's damage such as someone pushing a metal bearing onto it.
Of course one would think the Obverse would have a convex section. Which it doesn't recognizably have, although maybe it raised certain areas that are thus worn away in the high spots you see ??
But I know nothing about lamination snafus ....
Here is one of mine that is a struck through. 1941 P.
It looks like it was a delamination planchet error that is well worn. Worth about a dollar at best.
Here is mine, a 45 actually. Dig that 44 though, that coin has a certain loveliness to it you don't see every day.
I completely agree with Lamination/ delam.
It is not uncommon to see the devices even to the center of the coin.
IE in this case the A and M in a delamination.
Here is one on the date If you look closely the 1 and 9 are still visible, also the lamination was over part of the bust and those areas are still visible.
Pablo Picasso penny.
Too many coins. Which one?
The op's original coin in the opening post, a 1939 Lincoln Cent. Kinda looks like it's been buffed or slightly polidynow that I looked at it a third time.
