Hey everyone, I`m set up and going through my dads collection. starting with lwc`s first. I forgot my box of mint sets, so I shall get them when I go home in a few days and fix the road to my house from the monsoon`s. I`m curious if this is a Greaser or wear? Thx in advance

It does not look like a Greaser . I'm certain it's wear .

That is a weak spot for wheats. It's where the Lincoln portrait takes away metal from the Rev to fill in the Obv. Note the one also.

It is a Struck Through Grease error. What makes me think on that? Look at the devices, they are wider than normal, meaning the deeper part of the die was partly filled, thus the coins devices will be wider/taller and weaker as the die gets more grease in that area:
