*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

Hello all hope you are having a great night! Anyway I was going through some coin rolls I purchased at an auction and found a 1944 Wheat penny that might have been struck on the wrong planchet, any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!

I corrected your image links in the second post. I believe those where the images you were trying to post.

That's not Bronze. That looks like a plated coin.
Rest in Peace

Eaten away, whether intentional with acid or buried in acidic soil like a garden or hog farm...

Wow! Acidic hog farm, kinda takes away the desire for a good ham sandwich.

It's just a damaged coin unfortunately. It's Post Strike Damage (it happened after it left the U.S. Mint). It's only worth Copper melt value at this point.

Hi, Willyt22. The experts are on the spot on their assessments. To satisfy your curiosity, with you thinking it's a wrong planchet, try using a magnet. If your coin sticks to the magnet, you have a wrong planchet. Furthermore, weigh the coin, if it's in the 2.5 grams range then you have a wrong planchet. Otherwise, choose where to put the coin & hunt for more....choices...choices....hope to help.... enjoy the hobby...

I agree that the coin spent time in acid. That would account for the low weight.

Thanks so much for the editing and the evaluation I'm still working on posts! But I was wondering what the letters and numbers close to rim on the reverse and what appears to be a head and shoulders around the N in CENT on the reverse also? Any thoughts.

That's all damage unfortunately. This coin has had a very rough life.
