Hello everyone, I recently started collecting coins and have had some good luck. I think anyway. Going through coin rolls from the bank, I came across what I believed to be a damaged penny. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered the double ear. It was and still is very exciting.

Any thoughts and/or suggestions from veteran collectors on my next steps regarding this coin would be greatly appreciated. I have thought about contacting Mr. Wexler.

Enjoy the photos I took of the error. Thank you all for taking a look.

Really hard to tell from the images but I suspect it may be a die crack or circulation damage.
Before sending this one off, see if you can get some clear closeups.

You might also try soaking in acetone to see if the raised areas above the ear will come off.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Damage to a coin is not a mint error. PSD.

Hoping for better photos--larger, improved lighting. As they stand, I'm seeing a well-worn '82 D cent with corresponding post mint damage.
