1971 cent struck through







Recommended Comments

Hey, Tim. I'm not at all an expert on Struck-through errors in general or on US cents in particular, and I'm not sure if you're asking to say that you think you found one or if you're trying to ask if that coin is one. So, a little more text added to the post would probably help us understand what you're trying to say.

I'd also say, if you're looking for information or insights on this coin, the journals are not the best place to post this. You're better off posting a question in the more general chat board area. Many don't read and comment on the journals.

For my 2 cents, that looks like it's just a heavily worn and damaged cent. I don't think it's an error and I don't think it'd be worth much if it were because of all the obvious, severe, dings and hits.

Welcome to the journals and these chat boards. I hope you find what you need here.

Chat board would be the appropriate place for this question.  A photo of the reverse side would be essential to identify this as a strike-through or just a worn-out coin.  The rims look too good for a heavily worn cent, but the date looks too clear for a strike-through. Maybe just someone’s attempt at mutilating a coin?
