Hey folks!

I found this 1941 Wheat cent that's missing a few letters on the reverse. Any idea what something like this would be worth? Should I get it graded?

Thanks in advance!

Just a Struck Through Grease cent. Why spend a lot of money to grade a coin worth a a few cents. Don't make sense to me.

Yes looks like a grease-filled die to me. As @coop points out, not too much of a price premium for this small amount of missing detail.

As above, it's a matter of a Grease Filled Die. Not uncommon. IMO, not worth grading, not even close.

Agree. Wouldn't have it graded, but you should be excited about it! That's a good example and I'd be throwing it in a 2x2 as well.

to the CCF!

with the post above. Your coin is a Grease Filled Die strike.

Here's an image of an uncirculated 1939 Lincoln Wheat cent from my collection with a slightly larger struck through depression in the same area.
