the raised dots in the middle of the c's. they should be level with the actual coin, not raised to the height of the c's..

Actually I think that might just be from these (no offense) poor photos
Remember: Change is good, especially when it's a Wheat penny

It's a VAM-22. Is the reverse die rotated at all?

Yes, VAM-22 has die chips in CC. The coin looks good to me but we need accurate color images.

Photos that show the color accurately will help.

Actually, not a diagnostic of this being fake at all. VAM22 has these characteristic (die chips in the middle of the C's.)

Edit: Never mind, I see dave700x and BH1964 beat me to it.

I am amazed at how much information some collectors have! That was an impressive ID on this coin, especially knowing about the dots in the CC.
