    I was looking through a bunch of wheats the other day and came across a steel cent with a ghost 4. I know that this is just a grease filled die, but is there any kind of premium for these versus a normal steel cent?

    Can you post pics, straight on shots, with a close up of the date?

    If it is a grease filled die, generally no premium if any at all.

    I can but it will be later on this evening. I just remember hearing or reading about the "ghost" 4 some time ago but do not remember the details. The 4 is not completely gone but it is nowhere near as prominent as the 1,9, and 3. I'll post pics later.

    First, nice looking Steelie.

    Second, that would be a grease filled die, or struck through grease.

    Usually not a lot of premium for a small area to be affected by this. I'd keep it just because, it's in nice condition otherwise.

    Thanks for both the compliment and the input. I figured it was not worth much if anything but it never hurts to get a second opinion because depending on who you ask, my opinion is not worth much. Haha. Thanks again.

    You're welcome.

    Aside from the the 4, it's close to mine condition wise.

    Nice penny! I looked again and I have two of the "ghost fours" in about the same condition

    To the right collector it could add a $1 or 2 to the value. It's a pretty nice coin and it's interesting with the filled die error.

    It’s a seven year old thread, I was referring to @Chris5150 who dug up this ancient thread with a question and no pics.
