Lincoln penny

I found this 2004 no mint penny today. Is this coin a keeper ❓❓

    Welcome. This cent is damaged after it was minted. It is worth 1¢. Good luck. Peace Roy

    It's acid-washed. Something really smoking, like HCL or H2SO4, most likely.

    You should spend some effort improving your photography skills. Notice how the pillars of the memorial are in focus on the 2nd image, but NOTHING is in focus in the first? Not even the background! I'm guessing that you are using a cell phone and hand-holding it. Try bracing against a stack of books or something like that.

    A coin that even a Coinstar machine couldn't love.

    All glory is fleeting.
