I spent the evening looking at pennies and this one struck me as odd. What do you make of it? Worth saving?

The L is usually that close to the rim sometimes riding up on the side of it. the lower part of the L is missing, could be due to damage or even grease.

You can save it you want because it is copper but other than
that I can't see any other reason to keep it.

First it is a CENT, not a "penny," and the issue with your coin, as Dearborn has pointed out, is either grease or damage, and I am in agreement.

Hi there. If you really think you have something I would send it off to be graded. It costs about 30 bucks and may not be worth it, BUT. It is worth mentioning. I know some people have coins that have nothing wrong with them and they see errors anyway, mainly because they want to. There is another side though. I have noticed that the opinions given by some people that seem to be knowledgeable on this site or entirely opposite. Even if there is an error they may refuse to acknowledge it or be so dismissive they truly don't. I had an 87 d penny I was told have some plating issue that added no value and that it was worth 1 cent. I sent off to get it graded and it was a ms-065 brown DDO. Not worth selling now, because I paid for the grading, but it is worth 4-8 dollars. not just 1 cent or a "spender" as I was told. SO. Both sides can be wrong, and noone knows everything. Have a nice day.

First, I said I was "looking at pennies", but I called the posted coin a CENT..didn't I? Who says "I was looking at some cents". Also, I am hear to learn, that's why I ask questions. I appreciate all the feedback. I'm learning a lot. Especially from Dearborn. Many thanks Sir.

If it is showing on the outside edge of the coin, it might be a small strike debris on that area. If it fold over it could be a small attached lamination? Hard to say which, but the premium would be very modest if any. But that is what it could be.
