Your coin is only worth what you can learn from it.
And it looks like it has somewhat of a ghost on the reverse.
Thank you for your reply. I will be investigating it more even if only for the knowledge to use somewhere else. I appreciate you taking the time to help me figure out why it was like that.
A ghost as in something that was there before the penny was struck on it (fingers crossed and huge giddy smile on my face) because that's what I thought. The extra marks on the lip made me think that something else was there before the penny I just dont know what.
That's easy.. A blank Copper Planchet
That's a small lamination on the face. Common on wheat cents. That is not any kind of recycled coin.
The Ghosting is also common. Called Indirect Image Transfer. Nothing major.
The rest is PMD - Post Mint Damage
Copper is not very hard, and when it gets put into one of those things,
the metal moves a little. And it takes the new shape of the holder when
it is a tight fit.
