Likely not. Especially if you're putting tape on it. Can you share photos of the coin?

Why is the smaller cent so much thinner?
Very hard to see the difference in a pic but the 46 falls out of any holder space .. if I put the two together I do see a minimal difference
They appear to be the exact same size. Have you considered that there's an issue with the holder?
If you observe the spacing between "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the space beneath the bust of Lincoln and
the rim of both coins, they appear very close, if not the same in spacing.If you examine the edge views that someone thoughtfully included, the thickness of the flat edges differ, from smaller to larger; the edges of the larger coin appear to have a more evident bevel.
I agree; there's a story here! Congratulations, Pennies_aplenty; you seem to have found an anomaly previously unnoticed, and given the rest of us a new reason to search through our water jugs full of wheats!
I see no difference and think it's just a regular cents. I also ask you to please stop putting tape on coins. Over time, it will destroy them.
One planchet maybe had a softer alloy mix or the die pressure was different...lots of reasons for it but not earth shattering by any means...imo...Spark
Yeah...sorry...just realized a 3 and a half yo thread...aged, but not a necrothread...yet...Spark
" Honey, I Shrunk the Cents ! ".
It is a previously ecased Cent. Not any of what you stated. I explained it earlier in this thread.
...I bow to your expertise...Spark
I think the newer question was asked here first then the same person created their own separate thread.
(When I suggested a new thread)
I answered the question to why it's smaller but I don't think they want to accept it.
So I'm done with this Cent.
. Hopefully I’ll have a definitive answer today if they are open .
I like your persistence but get ready to be told it's not a Mint Error
