1929 Wheat Penny Error?
So I found this wheat penny while CRHing and I think it's an error coin. Does anyone know what kind of error to classify this as, and what it might be worth?

It might be a diagonal flaw planchet or a PMD. It looks like it was cracked in two.
0/5 Mercury dimes
0/10 Tombac nickels
0/10 War Nickels
0/1 Silver dollar
3/2 Silver half-dollar
14/100 silver dime
1/10 George V nickel
150/100 Wheat cents
2/5 Indian Head Penny
1/1 2006 no P magnetic
4/4 Clipped planchet
1/1 Blank planchet

1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

I agree. Looks like a lamination to me.

make that three. I vote lamination, a good size to. As far as value I'd say to a dealer about 20 bucks more to a collector. Good find.

Looks like a lamination. I came across a 50 D with a obverse lamination error last month
