    Damaged,looks like a corroded cent not an error and no need for two threads.

    I bought approximately 50 wheat penny's from an elderly man who has worked (clerk) for a beer/liquor store for years a few weeks ago and surprise!! I've got several more interesting coins I'll be sharing soon.

    Nice error coin.

    That coin was struck on a split planchet. If you weigh it, it will be under weight.

    Maybe in the 2 gram range based on the details still showing up.
    Like Expat said. We'll be looking for a nice image of the reverse.

    I didn't even think about it,now you mentioned I agree it does look like a split planchet.But a reverse picture would help alot,why do some errors have to look like damage!!!!.

    That was along the lines of my first thought but I was leaning more towards some type of surface lamination issues pre-strike.

    A lamination tends to be contained to part of the coin. The surface irregularities on the OP's coin seem to be on the entire obverse which led me to think of it being struck on a split planchet.

    I see what your saying now. I didn't consider how thick the struck portion may have been.

    Welcome to CT @Mike44. As you go, you'll learn how to best display your coin for the members to evaluate. While your second photo is good, and FULL IMAGE, we enjoy seeing both sides, and often the edge when necessary.
    This is something I post for new members. You may get some info from it.
    For the best results, you should post "in focus," FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and are easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows (you can use https://www.remove.bg for free), and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.

    Thanks PD.

    Lots of detail missing. That's a good sign of a low-weight coin.
