I received a bunch of wheat pennies from my grandpa and this one was in this cardboard sleeve as shown. To me it is not in very good condition but I wanted to ask if any of these marks/scrapes, or the gouge is any type of error or did this just get pretty roughed up? I'm just not sure why it was in this case. Thank you.

This is awesome! It is encased because of that fat error there on the obverse. :) Super cool!

Is a fat error where the "Liberty" is like fatter or could you explain? I tried to look it up but I'm not having any luck to find out what that means. Thanks

I think it might be a "strike through" error, meaning something was in the way when the obverse die struck.

No you have what is called a LAM, or Lamination error. This is the result of an improper alloy mixture when the planchet sheets were made, notice the tiger stripes on both sides of the coin. your coin is remarkable because the LL side of the obverse is completely delaminated, notice how it is missing, this wasnt done through damage.

Guessing this is a lamination. Also looks like a "woody".

I agree it is a lamination error on the obverse. The reason the earlier wheat cents are always so circulated is that they really hadn't been been saved till about 1934. You can find rolls of BU cents back to almost that year. Thus they are rarer to find nice examples after that year.

Yes the "fat error" I was referring to is the lamination error on the bottom left. :)

Nice looking cent - the (De) Lamination has shown the improper alloy mix in the coin

Just out of curiosity, how much value does a delam error put on a coin like this?

Does anyone know if these improper alloy examples tend to delaminate more readily? Just curious.
