No. You’ve asked (here and on at least one other forum) about multiple coins, most of which are not errors.

Have you been trying to learn about errors by reading and consulting guides and articles? If so, which ones?

I don't think they have an error like this one to look up and yes I do do my homework before I post but it's always nice to get your guys opinion on it

That is damage. Something struck the coin, causing the raised lines.

Looks like the kind of coin you find on the road or sidewalk after its been walked or run over a few times.

It's tough to keep new collectors interested in this hobby without burning out the old and experienced collectors that have literally seen it all multiple times and are tired of wasting what little time they have left trying to explain stupid meaningless stuff to newbies that think they have discovered something worth millions.  I really wish there were more people out there willing to google stuff, and maybe do some searching on their own before posting questions.  Personally, I usually ignore these questions and move along.  But that doesn't serve anyone.

Right on the NGC homepage is a section on the header called resources.

Put your curser on if and scroll down to variety's.  Some cool stuff there and your first step to being a knower.

I agree with the others that you have posted many of these cents asking about specific errors and I have seen you post on the Collectors forum asking the same questions.  You can google "Triple Strike" and get results just as I just did in 5 seconds. Look at your cent and the example shown below and see if there is a difference between yours and it. I realize you are a very new and unknowledgeable collector but you are taking NO initiative to do any research on your own. You might want to try it for a while before you start losing members that will no longer respond to your threads.

That's actually a double strike with the second strike also being a saddle strike.  Dual die press and the coin was struck by both dies at the same time on the second strike.

Well that was the first image I found that came from this website.
