1939 1 cent improper alloy mix error aka "Woody"

Just wanted to share a recent (free) acquisition. I have many US Lincoln Cent woodies, but this one puts them all to shame.

Yes, they came from the final "wash" as they came down the line. You find many many George large cents from just before WW1 through the teens that are great "woody" keeps.
