Question
I am looking for value of a misprint on a wheat back penney the date is 192

Answer
Hi Gene,

Is it possible that the last digit of the date is simply worn away, as opposed to this being an error?

Another possibility is that the die was clogged with some foreign element that prevented a full strike.  Either way, I can not evaluate anything that I can not see.

If you send me a picture, I will see hwat I can do for you.
