I had this 1957-D wheat penny that I found and I want to make sure if this is error or not. I hope someone can help. Thanks!

    Very common and worthless strike/mechanical doubling. Even if it was true hub doubling it would not be an error it would be a variety as every coin struck from that die would have the same feature.

    It has some value as an excellent example to illustrate machine doubling. It's clear as could be on this one.
