1955 wheat penny

I have a 1955s wheat penny. It has the A missing in the word America. I thought this was unique.

    Actually the M is mostly missing - a bit of a grease filled die

    I'm sorry, you're right I meant to say M in the comment. I guess A just came out , LOL

    Is there something going on at the date and mint mark, though?

    @Fraz
    I do believe there's a little Doubling on the date and mint mark.

    If you don't have this pick up point it is probably minor.

    Consult variety vista for other possibilities

    @Bamaphil .... The missing M is due to a grease filled die it seems.... Possible machine doubling on the date. Cannot see anything on the MM in that picture. Cheers, RickO

    I find the grease filled die strikes interesting.

    Many happy BST transactions

    If struck through grease filled die wouldn't the grease start a tonning process ?
