1951S Major Wheat Penny Errors

Hey everyone,

What are your thoughts here? Struck through grease error? What else is going on here?

Thanks!

    Sorry, but it just looks like a new cent that has seen a hard life in circulation

    @Oldhoopster thanks for the feedback! It’s interesting because i found similar coins with those errors.

    Looks like a possible grease filled die to me, I have a similar one that I will post a picture of later if I can find it

    Yes, it's a partial debris filled die error. Nice that it's on the date, but you can still see the 1. Interesting but considered a minor error at best. Still cool to save if you like it

    Loos like a grease problem. Kind of looks like it had a hard life while in circulation maybe even a battle on a parking lot, PMD. Have you tried putting it under a microscope and seeing if you can see an impression of a number?
