Hi everyone I'm new to the forum and new to coin collecting. I just finished my first penny roll hunt and I found a 1945 Wheat penny with what looks like a double d error mark. It looks like one d is sideways and the correct d was stamped on top of it. I've been checking around and I haven't found any other examples of this online. Being a newbie, I'm perfectly willing to accept that The only error here is mine. #129396;
Has anyone here seen or heard of this kind of error on this coin? I'm trying to figure out how to upload pics and will get one up here asap, but I would love some insight until then. Thanks!
Incuse marks on a coin, show where it took a beating in circulation. Also flattening is another event that happens in circulation. These events could happen to a normal or variety coin. But the damage cancels the value if it was a die variety. (It also places doubt as to being a mint error)
