Please help grade this 1943 steel penny it's almost flawless and on the date the 9 4 3 have a extra line around the tops of them. Is this doubled die error? On grade alone is it worth getting professionally graded ? Thanks

we need better photos to see what's happening with this coin.

Is the color correct on these photos? If so, it may be that this coin has been reprocessed. The color should be silvery gray, not silvery blue.

A high grade cent would be more matte looking with out a sheen:

A re-processed coin that is plated, looks shiny:

to CCF. I also think it is a reprocessed cent.

Reprocessed? Is that a nice way to say it's fake or imitation?

No, it just a term to describe an original cent that was re-plated to achieve a "new" appearance.

And as far as the date goes, when I zoom in on it, it looks like a slight case of Machine Doubling. However larger and closer pixs of the date would tell us for sure

And to add to Greasy Fingers's comment, a comment about greasy fingers: it's best never to touch the coin surfaces with your bare hands, as even if you're gentle, the natural oils from your skin can transfer to the coin and blemish it permanently. It's best to hold the coin by its edges, and many people wear gloves as well as a further precaution. Not trying to call you out, but considering you'd mentioned the idea of getting the coin graded, it would be a shame to damage any nice coin of yours.
