    These appear to be composed of the standard alloy, so they wouldn t be off-metal errors. Diameter is normal, so they wouldn t be wrong planchet errors,

      These appear to be composed of the standard alloy, so they wouldn't
      be off-metal errors. Diameter is normal, so they wouldn't be wrong
      planchet errors, either.

      The one on the left would most likely be a cent struck on a planchet
      punched out of cent stock that was rolled too thin (a "rolled-thin"
      error). The coin on the right seems to have a very rough surface.
      It might have been immersed in a corrosive liquid (an "acid job"),
      and would therefore not be an error.
