@rog, first welcome to CCF. Second, I'm sorry to hear about your difficulty with uploading a second pic. The first one came through fine. From just this one, it looks like your coin was damaged after it left the mint. We will know more when we see the other side though.

Yes, a rather mutilated Wheat cent. Not a mint error. Appears, perhaps, a potion of the coin was exposed to intense heat a good while back. Looking forward to the obverse photo.

I usually call PMD if the toning on the area in question is not the same as the other area if the metals are the same. Donīt use this if the coin has an unrelated stain on the questioned area.

We don't need to see the other side to know this is damage, not a mint error.

The coin is badly damaged. More images won't change that.
