1939 missing U in UNUM

I don’t know if this is an error or circulation damage. Any thoughts?

    Looks like a grease filled die. ;)

    First impression is a Strike thru or maybe a filled die

    Yep, grease filled die. No added value.

    Welcome to the forum
    Partial Grease Filled Dies are fairly common and can occur
    on any denomination. They generally don’t add any value.

    It’s neat to get a wheat. Get a Whitman folder for it. Find its brothers and put them in with it.

    Thank you for the welcome! I am just a casual collector, going through a collection my father and I started in the 70’s.

    I can see him keeping it, it's an oddball. But, like said, it's just caked-in grease. We kept these, though, too, when we were younger. They're kind of cool.

    I keep a Whitman for things that I can’t toss. I’d put it there, maybe the jar.
