Came across a video on repunched mint marks on a steel Wheat penny that recently sold at auction for nice amount. What are your guys opinions? I know the zoomed in isn't the best bc I do not have the proper photo equipment but hopefully it shows enough to tell. Any pointers on where I can sale to make same profit or close to it?

@jen, while there are more than 20 known RPMs for this date/mint, I'm not sure that you've got one here. Have you compared this coin with the RPMs listed yet? Here is a link to the varietyvista list:

Check VV and Wexler and coppercoins, but I am not seeing an RPM.

Note the direction. That is die wear. The steel planchets made the dies wear faster that year. The date and mintmarks will show die wear in that direction:





CoopHome: What causes the movement of metal on devices on 1943 cents to move towards the closest rims? extreme die wear. steel planchets made the dies wear down faster than the copper planchets.
