What should I do if I find a defect in a penny?

Does the defect make it more valuable?

A defect like an incorrect pattern, upside down pattern, or a double face or double tail will increase its value. However, dents, scratches, wear or the inner metal showing doesn't improve its value.

A defect in a penny can add to the value depending on other factors such as the rarity of the coin and whether or not it is still in circulation. You can do a search to find out what it may be worth or take it to a coin dealer.
