Hey everyone, Let me know your thoughts on this 1879 Indian Head penny. Something strange is going on on the Obverse, and I am unsure if this is a good find or not?

All of the reverse images posted so far, are from the LWC.
And I think the 5 digit date is just a coincident it looks like that.

It does not looks like 5 digits.

Just damaged and scraped.

The corrosion makes it look like something after the date, not another digit. Damage and corrosion can do funny things.

Just an illusion caused by corrosion.
Not an error.

It is just corrosion that happens to look like a number. PMD (post mint damage), not a mint error.

It's just a heavily damaged coin, not an error. It also shows bad corrosion.
