    On the obverse it is obvious what my question is. The whole area looks damaged, but there is not even a trace of the "I". And on the reverse , what are those extra "leaflike" marks on the trails? Thank you guys!

    So.. What year is your Wheat Cent?
    The age of the coin can tell a better story of the circulation wear and tear it has suffered.

    Most likely a minor filled die on the obv, and minor die chips on the reverse

    The thing about grease-filled dies and die chips is that you can never know where on the die they might occur. One of the reasons that Mint Errors are never listed in the Census of the top TPG's is because there could be hundreds and hundreds of variations for each and every date/mintmark/obverse/reverse.

    Filled dies are interesting but they do not command a premium.
    They are really quite common.

    What does the full front an back look like *first*?
    By ignoring possibly many identifiers of wear and tear you are just fishing for a specific reply.

    Well to to honest with you I didn't have a phone for more than 24 hours to get the pics; and my USB couldn't be helpful to take full images. To be straight with you tho, i don't believe to be fair enough to assume that I am fishing for a specific reply. Fishing for what? and for what reason? trying to trick people whose help I need all the time every day? You are free to believe whatever you like; I respect that. But just for your info: You are wrong!
