SO me and my granddad were going through his old coins and we found a Lincoln penny with an odd stamping error. On the obverse side the memorial building is stamped twice, criss-crossing each other.Also, on the face side, the memorial building is stamped AGAIN right across Abe's face.
I do not remember the date and can not get to the coin bc it is in a safe, but I think it is somewhere in the range of 40's-60's.
We couldn't find anything even close to something like this on the internet, and I was hoping someone could help me on value and rarity.

Clear, large, correctly rotated pictures are needed, and we will see what we think of the coins from grandpa.

Or squeeze with a vise to alter the surface.:

This will leave incuse design on the victim coin.
If glue is one the coin, it will be raised above the devices.

ahhh. So, I don't actually own a phone, but I do have a camera and will do my best to upload the photos, it may be a few days! I don't think it is glue, because it was encased in tape to protect it(?) and when the tape was peeled off there was no bits or anything on it..thank @coop it does look like a vice squeezed cent. Again, pictures will come soon!

Make sure to use the macro setting on your camera,the little flower icon. Try to use natural light and no flash.

If the devices are mirrored on your coin, then that is what it is. (Look again at the image I posted)
