So, I went through a stack of Wheat pennies, and found a couple that I had some questions on. The first is a bit under weight (came in at 2.73g) and has a really interesting color and streaks in it. also, a really weak strike. Wondering if this might be an error on some other material?
The second seems to have a hole not all the way through the coin, but what's interesting, is that the metal is just displaced to the outside of the hole from what I can tell. does not seem to be drilled. looks like it might be a bad planchet? any ideas? Thanks so much for any help

Your 55 looks to be a "woody" cent - improperly mixed alloy causeing the streaks on your coin. And struck through grease causing the light/missing letters on the reverse.
I have no guesses to what happened to your 20.
You should always collect within your income, even if you have to borrow to do so.

Concerning the 1920. Lam that started a deep corrosion? Or an old impact that started corrosion. Either way, I do think the hole is PMD.

I agree with mark on 1955.

Thanks guys. I had the same thoughts on the 20, just wasn't sure because of the excess metal outside the hole on both sides. Thought it could have been an impurity blowing out at mint.
And thanks for the info on the 55. Was hard finding anything on that. I have to say, I'm so glad I joined here. Everyone is so helpful and inviting. Thanks again!
