Hi everyone. I have no idea when it comes to coin collection. Can someone help me with this 1958 Wheat penny? When you look at the year 1958, #8 looks doubling to me. And also the word "in god" looks like double dies but not sure. This coins is a shiny brown or bronze in color. Is this coin has value? Thanks.

Will need a lot better closeup oriented pix than those to see 100%. But judging by the die state what you see is die deterioration doubling. A VLDS (very late die ste) can be seen by the devices moving outward. This is called die flow, is normal. The IGWT and L of LIBERTY are on the edge of the die. This movement stretches these elements causing the dies to form attrition (deteriorating) around them, appearing larger, reflecting light differently. The best example is the 1955 "Poorman's doubled die" where the 5's got wider.
