I found a really cool 1942 wheat penny, but it looks like the 9 wasn’t stamped all the way. What do you think?

    Nooooooooooooo!
    Never use metal tweezers on any coin!

    The date looks like it took a hit.

    Post Mint Damage.
    Metal tweezers are not going to hurt that coin any.
    It is still worth 1¢.

    Thank you! I knew if I was going to post images I should more or less try to have the best quality I can manage :) I have used my iPhone for these, but I also have a Nikon D3400 camera that is pretty handy!
