Your coin appears to be a very well circulated coin considering the date.
Your coin looks to be a common 1945 cent. Cents of this era end up being many different colors due to the variety of things they are exposed to.
Looks like a normal cent
99.99% of the time when someone thinks a coin has an "error",
it is actually damage.
The Mint has a quick process to manufacture coins. And errors are by comparison very limited due to the process.
After that *anything*, and we mean *anything* can happen to a coin. Just think of everything and every place you have seen one and don't forget to include parking lots, garbage disposals, run over by lawn mowers, eaten away by soda pop in cup holders, artsy crafts, etc.
dont forget them being eaten by animals and children
Copper is usually copper colored. When it has that orange or pink color,
it has been harshly cleaned.
A planchet is the blank metal disc that becomes a coin after it is minted.
A different planchet has to be smaller than the actual planchet.
A larger planchet would not fit, and generally other countries coins are not the same size as US coins with a couple of exceptions.
If the copper coin was one of the coins that was the same size, how would you know the difference, since they are using the same blank?
Unless you are talking about a coin that was minted on an already existing coin, which is another thing.
If the coin was the wrong planchet you wouldn't have full cent rims (since the wrong planchet is smaller).
Any coin you have a question about, you should always weigh first as that will usually answer 95% of any questions.
