    Honestly, this coin looks a mess, pure and simple damage.

    If it was from extra 'strikes' as you put it, then it would match up with the attached overlay in some way. Nothing about this coin matches any part of the overlay, since there are no extra strikes. It is a big mess of post mint damage in my opinion.

    What I can see is apparent water damage, amongst other things

    There are billions and billions and billions of pennies that have circulated through mud, parking lots, urinals, etc., etc., etc. What makes you think this one is any different?

    Because you didn’t look hard at the coin it’s struck on a gold planchette

    that’s not a pmd. It’s mint error.

    Welcome to the forum. As stated, your coin is just badly damaged. It looks like it may also have been cleaned giving it that odd color. Definitely not gold, just a normal, but really beat up cent.

    Amigo.. Just because a coin looks different, strange or weird does not automatically make it a Mint Error.
    That is not a Mint Error of any kind. Not gold.

    Unfortunately, just a badly damaged coin. Take the input here from your fellow enthusiasts as data to refine your variety/error seeking eyes and help you along the learning curve of what to look for and what to reject.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    While I appreciate your enthusiasm, why do you believe it's a mint error and not PMD?

    Many of the responses you received are from members who are very knowledgeable of the minting process and have extensive experience collecting error coins. As they have said, there is no part of the minting process that would have produced a coin in that condition. However, copper is a very reactive metal and your coin has the characteristic appearance of environmental damage.

    While there is nothing wrong with disagreeing with the consensus of experienced collectors, you really need to provide some information on what could have caused the error at the mint. Just saying "It's a mint error" doesn't cut it, unless you provide some reasoning.

    If you believe it's struck on a gold planchet, can you provide supporting information? Do you have XRF data showing it's gold? (It's not too hard to find a shop who has a handheld XRF unit). Where/when/why did the mint make cent sized gold planchets in 1963? Many annual mint reports are available at the Newman Numismatic Portal if you want to do some research? You can also study the minting process on the following link.

    Your coin is pure damage. Nothing more and certainly not an error. Welcome to CT.
