1930 Finger Feeder Wheat Penny Error?

Additional Information
Date: 05/30/2012

I am confident that this is a Finger Feeder Error. Just as confident as I have been with every other error I believed I had found, and was schooled on the fact that they were all in fact Not errors. Did I finally get one with this 1930 Wheat Penny?

Nope, this is post mint damage. Looks like someone took some shears to it and chopped into it

Post mint damage as previously mentioned. You can tell because the metal looks somewhat displaced around the affected area.

Agreed, if you do an LCR search on the subject of feeder finger scrapes you'll learn a great deal of information.

It's important to remember that feederfinger damage doesn't happen on the coin, but the die itself. The scraped area across the face of the reverse die is then transferred to the coin as a slightly raised anomaly. The scrapes on the die itself are of course incuse, or indented.

Welcome to lcr! I agree with the others - it's post mint damage!

'Die Scrapes inflicted by a Feeder Finger' pic

Here is a great pic of an example of 'feeder finger damage' that was done to a die, and like Chris has said, left a 'raised' anomaly on the coin;

I am assuming you mean die gouges...not gauges. A feeder finger scrape can certainly be considered a gouge. The big difference is that we know the reason on the feeder finger damage, whereas we may not know the reason for any other gouges. Technically, they are all gouges though.

Feeder finger damage is usually in one direction. It is caused by the feeder finger scraping on the die. After time they will be seen in a sweeping pattern across the die face. A die gouge can be from contact on the die, but in any direction. The object that causes this can be from anything touching the field area of the die. A die dent is contact from another die making a strong mark into the die and usually in a straight/rounded mark on the die. These may be small or large depending on how much contact/impact was made.

Aisha's Coin

I always thought that this coin was another great example of Feeder Finger Damage to a Die. This was taken from a post a while back from Aisha.
