    I overlooked this coin while roll hunting a few months ago.Luckily I decided to look back through some previously sesrched through pennies again. I am certain something is going on but I can't exactly tell what is going on with the overstrike/strikethrough. Any knowledge shared on this would be greatly appreciated. Also i adjusted a couple photos to try and bring out what I am seeimg

    Can you be more specific as to where this anomaly occurs? I see no signs of a strike though. All I do see is a stain in 2 places on the obverse.

    Welcome to CT @Jacobr0808. I too see nothing different on your cent. Also, it is generally better if you post your photos FULL IMAGE (after uploading your photo, two choices appear below it, thumbnail and full image, click full image and your photo will show up on the post and be easier to enlarge and see). Post full (cropped so little distracting background shows) and correctly orientated, obverse and reverse photos and then close ups of areas you question. You will get more responses this way. Many here don't like to, or won't click on thumbnails or links to see photos.

    No, the coin is well circulated. Not overstruck. You are seeing what is called perodolia.
