Not sure about about the date on Wheat penny, but it looks to have a error on the reverse also? The other penny is just messed up?

Your first coin looks like it has a serious case of road rash perhaps mixed with a vice job--I think only PMD on that one. I'm not sure whether the wheatie is a clipped panchet or just a bored kid at work with a file. Clearer pics of both sides at the potential clip and then on the opposite edge might let us confirm one way or the other.

First one isn't an error, just damage, the second may be a "straight clip", meaning blank was cut from the end of stock plate. I am not sure of #2 tho, because of the wear, no Blakesley effect is seen and the amount of rim showing on reverse shows edge being smashed flat perhaps.

I'm not sure about the first coin ,since all the damage appears to be raised above the fields. I would like to have some closer pics of this first coin.

First coin is just PMD and the second might be a Straight End Clip. If you can get pictures on the side of were the Clip is, that would be great. :)

Both coins are obviously post mint damage. On the 2nd coin, if the straight clip were real, there would not be the arcing edge just inside of the "clip" area due to metal flow into the straight clip area. That area would be even with the field area. No Blakesley either.
