You have what's known as a "Magician's Coin".

This is NOT something that was done at the Mint.

Somebody made this by altering two normal coins and gluing the altered pieces back together. Use a magnifier to check just inside the rim on one side of the coin -- you are looking for the seam where the two pieces were joined -- it could be on either side of the coin.

This type of novelty item sells regularly on eBay.com for a couple of dollars.

This is not a mint error. The coin has been altered some how, likely two halves glued together..It has no numismatic value.

Wheat cents are a variety of Lincoln cents minted from 1909 to 1958, currently worth about two cents. The Lincoln memorial pennies are still face value.

Nothing. It's a fake. Please take the time to use this site's Search feature. Enter the word DOUBLE and you'll find that this question has been asked hundreds of times.

The value depends on the type and severity of the the error. If nothing else, it contains two cents' worth of copper.

It's a privately manufactured novelty coin or a home made glued together kind that has no value at all.
