Error Penny - Year "195" missing last number
I just found this wheat in a box of pennies tonight. I blew it up with my camera and could not see any evidence of the last number scratched off. Would this be an error related to a greased die? Also, do you see any doubling on the 5? Any help would be great, thanks

Try posting in the coins section. Could be a greasy die but it dosen't look like it from the pictures provided. Could you post a close up of the date?

I actually have about five pennies that look like that. Not sure if it is grease or if it is wear that hits that corner. I also have some wheats tat are worn down to nothing hardly visible anywhere on them.

Very interesting. I know you search a lot of pennies, so I can get a sense of rarity of this coin type, have you found multiple other key dates?
