    Good morning and..
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I have a problem. I woke up today with my eyes irritated. Fell asleep with dirty contact lenses. I took them off and flushed them down the toilet. So when I checked my backpack to get my glasses I realized I left them home :facepalm:
    So now I can't see anything! (At my mom's place today)

    I just got back from the local supermarket to get some items for my mom. The girl at the cashier handed me my change and I was surprised to see an Off Center Penny.. And it's a Wheat Cent :wideyed:
    My only problem is that I can't see the date since I'm can't see well. It's so blurry

    Help me out people.. Is it 1953 or 1957? o_O

    These are the best pictures I can take without my glasses :confused:

    Ok.. So I woke up my son and asked him to take a picture for me.. He stated it's a 1955 but that it looks weird. He knows nothing about coins!

    He cropped it for me but I still can't see well :meh:

    Nice find even though its fake happy Thanksgiving number 1 it has .v.d.b in the middle bottom of the reverse which was only used in 1909 number 2 its a 1955 showing some extreme obverse doubling and it's very off center whats the odds of it being real still a nice master fake that I would keep.
