1917 Wheat Cent

The good thing is that it is 98 years old. The bad thing is that it is damaged. Who knows what this coin has been through over its lifetime. What I can guess is that it suffered a series of scratches that looks intentional. Also it was glued to something at one point.

Even if not damaged in low circulating grade it has little value. Still this is probably the reason I found it in circulation. Even a casual collector would notice the damage and think it is not worthy to add to a good collection.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1917
Mintage: 196,429,785
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.30 in G-4

Sounds like a Struck Through Grease error, no extra value.
