I bought the wife a few rolls of LWC for mother's day and of course I got to search one. I must say, great rolls comparatively. One of the pennies is unlike any I have found or recall seeing. The reverse has a large crack across it, I say crack because it is not a straight line. Above the line looks great but below it is almost pitted looking, you can still read some of the words through the pitting. The other side is also pitted but not as severe. Of course I have pictures but they are too big to post and I only have my cell right now.

I'm envisioning a massive lamination peel, but that's being optimistic.

I'll wait for pics.

Pictures will be as soon as I can figure that out. The rolls also produced 2 more coins towards the completion of the wheaties!! The collection is now down to single digits left to go !!

ok, poor pics and I will get some better but later when I have more than my phone. Hard to see here but the words can still be made out on the reverse under the whatever it is.

Looks like it was held in some acid that affected each side of the coin. If the area tapers off from the line (including the diameter) that may have been one happened to it.

Coop, agreed other than the line is not straight? The obverse definitely looks that way. Why couldn't someone have destroyed a 1982d instead of this '26

It may have been back in 1926 when they did it? We don't know. People mess up great coins all the time. Experimenting on them. Damaging them:

What people do to coins today, could be the futures looking back and them say, "Why did they do that to make the coin look better. Now look at it!" They used to soak coin in olive oil. Not they don't because it is organic and in time it can rot even in metal. They used to varnish BU coins to keep them shiny. That didn't work out. They used to put Proof/BU coins in an envelope to keep them safe. Now the coins are uncirculated but very dark. Some album turn BU coins a different color. I just stick with the way they look and may remove some grit from circulated coins. But BU/proof. I don't try to make them better. Too many bad looking examples that people look back at and regret.

Sorry man, but it isn't an error. It's Post Strike Damage (Happened out of the U.S. Mint).

Thanks folks, the only thing that was odd to me was the crack not being straight. I am not an error guy, never even look for them. This one was just so dramatic.

I know what you mean about cleaning coop, I came home one day to find a handful of pennies soaking in cola

Nice mystery.. The 'crack' is only on the reverse, right..?

Yes Swamp, only the reverse and the "pitting" or whatever it is is much less pronounced on the obverse

I think I know generally how that happened, but not specifically..

Picture this as an example: Water chemical treatment room, chlorine, at a community swimming pool.. The penny gets adhered to the bottom of an outside-inside roller-type door by being cut approx halfway through and approx in half on its reverse side in such a manner that the cent is not only half-inside / half-outside when the door is down but also is held in a way where the obverse is against the floor's flat surface ( and for argument's sake this is a pretty good airtight seal as well.. )

Instead of the cent being eaten away in the liquid direction we were heading (acid) the coin is instead being consumed by a gas.. The airtight seal prevents both sides of the portion of the coin on the outside side of the cut from being damaged much and the obverse against the floor on the inside prevents the same volume of chlorine molecules from attacking it as the reverse is being subjected..

Yes..? No..? Kinda-sorta..? It's the not-straight crack that's the, ermmm, fly in the ointment..
