1988 Penny Error?

#1 Unread post by mancavemaverick »

I have a 1988 penny with a ridge around about 25% on the obverse. Is this an error or is it common.

Thanks Daniel,
Being new to the hobby I had no idea what to call that ridge. I appreciate you taking the time to educate me, and others.

Best regards,
Maverick
