Does this penny have a triangular die break on the reverse between the columns on the left? Maybe also struck thru grease? Thank you for your help.

@jv, have you tried looking at an overlay to see if this cent might have been struck from a clashed die? It looks a bit like the back of Abe's head, but I'm not sure that it lines up exactly.

Yup! It's a die clash as Spence said. Here's an overlay.

@Yokozuna - Thank you for doing the imaging. Does a die clash carry any premium?

To the best of my knowledge, no.
It occurs often enough.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

@Kanga - I see people trying to sell die clashes on ebay. Some for a few dollars. Others for a lot more. Not sure what to think.

It is a die clash on the reverse,but too minor for a premium.
Not sure about IGWT?

Looks like a slight rotation of the obverse die from the clashes its been through. Thus the shoulder is not exact to overlays.
