    Once again. I am seeking help with a coin. 1941 Wheat penny if it is an error coin I would not know how to identify the proper error via coin language. Still pretty new to collecting. Any help is much appreciated.

    Start looking at and categorizing all of your change that you come across.
    And realize that 99.9% of everything you think is "different" is different because it is being damaged and wear from circulation and everything else. Remember the older a coin gets the more circulation wear it can get.

    Every pick up a cent from the ground?
    from a parking lot .. with a lot of scraps on it?
    Damage is unlimited from it being indirectly damaged to it being directly damaged by someone for some reason that you may never understand. In the past I would use coins to test things or to buffer things of more value as coins are cheaper than other things and still worth face value no matter how much damage you impose on it.

    Look at those circular holes ... looks someone, for some really good reason, put it in a machine that slightly smashed it and put a divit in it at some point in it's 77 years of circulation. But who really knows right ?

    It doesn't look like any of your other Wheat
    Cents because it's damaged, really.

    Another way to look at it: how could it have been minted
    at the US Mint like that?

    Oh I know it has a lot of damage to it there's no doubt there. The lettering just seems to resemble that of I want to say DD but I may be wrong on that term. The D mint Mark, The "WE" and other letters look possibly doubled. However my curiosity is based off of pictures I have seen. I have never seen a Doubled coin in person. Only been collecting about 2 years now.
