Hey Everyone - Came across this 1947D Wheat penny my collection. Looks like it has ridges, maybe intended for a dime.

Can someone provide information and most importantly value for this?
I'll try and post pictures ASAP.

@NN, first welcome to CCF. Second, from your initial description it sounds like you have a cent with a reeded edge. I look forward to seeing pics of this area. Also, please post the weight of this piece. Thx.

Here are a couple images, file size reduction messed up the aspect ratio, but have a look.

PSD for sure. Didn't happen at the U.S. Mint nor did it leave like that.

@Errers and Varietys - thanks for reply but how can you be so certain? Can a grading company confirm that?

Trying to find my scale..will post once I have the weight

I agree this could definitely be PSD but my understanding is that 1) usually occurs on coins with significant additional strike errors..2) the reeding/ridging is very smooth and consistent, hard to imagine caused by a coin rolling machine

I just know it didn't happen at the U.S. Mint, because I know how the minting process works.

I agree with Errers and Varietys, and your coin looks nothing like a dime planchet, there are no ridges on the actual side of the coin, just cut into the obverse and reverse.

I agree with nss-52, in that the damage looks like it's due to an encasement prosess.
