    Ok so I found a 47' Wheaty while hunting the other day, (Good day actually, I came across several interesting errors and varieties I think my fellow "numisfanatics" here might find relatively interesting), anyway, besides the Lamination, would this also be a:

    Multiple Strike(s) - Based on the huge "UNITED" imprinted vertically on Lincoln's Vest, in addition to a few other Letters on the Obverse?, as well as the large partial date, namely, the "9" on the upper-right side on the Reverse? (Note: Although it may be difficult to see in the photographs attached heretofore, at least one or two other digits appear next to the "9"), and/or;

    Broadstrike - Due to the relatively large "stretch" of metal visible on the upper-left of the obverse and the lower-right of the reverse?, and/or;

    Brockage - As a result, of the various possible mirror image design impressed on the opposite side of subject coin?

    Finally, I greatly appreciate any insight from our experienced and esteemed members as to a proper way to identify the errors present on this cent and whether it is worth possibly having attributed? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!

    Incused and backwards lettering were added after it left the US Mint. Using a workshop vice.

    Not Broadsruck nor Brockage. Just altered.

    Unfortunately.. Not a mint error of any kind.

    All I see is a lot of post-mint damage.
