    Is this simply old age or is there anything slightly interesting about this 1916 penny.

    I haven’t observed one that looks like this one. Is it worth holding on to? 705F709C-BF3A-49ED-89C9-649DF02AD360.jpeg 037D2053-FFDC-486A-8E61-9E4D6E1BE0AC.jpeg FC3808F8-2022-4145-B5A7-46181AC14B60.jpeg 1A22A89A-BE31-43A8-AD5F-34271E864BE9.jpeg

    Hi:)
    Imho, if it’s a filler, than sure!
    It appears to be heavily worn and damaged.

    Yes, this is definitely environmental damage/heavy corrosion.

    Almost certainly a dug coin. So yes, environmental damage.

    Worth keeping? Well, it's not gonna be worth a whole lot monetarily, especially due to the surface issues, but it's a 103-year-old cent, so yeah, interesting enough to keep, if you wanted to.
