2003 penny struck thru grease

Post by Sharon » Mon Feb 22, 2021 6:40 pm

Hi my first time posting here. I came across this interesting penny the other day. It appears to have been struck thru grease then got stuck and jostled around while still being struck many times. Would like to know what others might think about it. Is this an error coin?

To me it looks like damage done after leaving the mint. I know there are people on here with much more experience than me so hopefully one of them will also give their opinion.

Looks like a regular 2003 CENT that has some environmental damage.
Where do you see it being struck through grease?

Welcome to the forum.
I have to agree with whats already been said here, no errors, just damage.
