Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Damaged coins are NEVER worth grading.

Explain to me why the nine on the end of 1929 looks like a cursive q and is in fact raised in a continuous strike.
Can you say the magic word? JUST KIDDING! 😜

The 9 was hit by something when in circulation. Coins take many hits and sometimes end up making us think of other things by the look of their damage. How can we be so sure its damage? B/c studying the way coins are made will let you understand there is no way this could have happened at the mint. The procedures for making coins make it impossible for a q to make it into the date. And even if the impossible became possible and it had, this cent, being 100 years old, with literally millions of coin collectors searching their coins for errors in all that time (especially since the internet was hatched and error hunting became the rage) would have notices this. The way coins are made, a wrong letter/number engraved into a die would have to have made many more of the same.

I am not sure what you mean by the S being a continuous strike? To a collector the word strike means for a die to hit a coin and make an impression. Please elaborate on what you are asking.
But still, a 1929-S Wheat Penny is not very common at all!
Granted, you do not get them in pocket change. But look at eBay sold items for a 1929-S in this condition. Generally a $1.00 max in the same condition as yours. Unless they still have all the details just like they came out of the mint (details not worn away from circulation), they do not command a high price. If they have original mint luster and in great condition (not just shiny as a cleaned coin is easily told), then they can bring a higher price.
