Hello! My 1955 LWC has me baffled! I've had this coin for a long time~ Unfortunately I did not store it properly, so there are many things happening to it, which I believe one is a lamination issue? I thought there was something stuck to it so I pulled a nice size piece of lamination off where the darker area is~ around 2:00. Ugh! As soon as I did it I knew it was something I should not have done.
I know NOW, I should never peel anything off a coin~ lesson learned~
It's still a cool looking penny though~ I bet there is not another one out there like it!






I used a different magnification and light to take the 2nd and 3rd pic.

Thank you for the welcome Coinfrog!

I do like to share some of my crazy coins!
Do you think the coin has been plagued with a lamination error?

Has anyone ever seen a coin like this? I'm thinking it has to be lamination issues.... does anyone know? I'm keeping it because it's different, is this a spender or a blender?!

Looks like glue, over cleaning and the coin was struck with an extremely worn die. Is it really raised, or incuse? If raised, it is glue. If incuse it maybe a lamination or the coin was damaged. Not a plus for the coin. But still a Wheat cent and worth tossing into the wheat pile:
