I am not a coin collector (except in my pocket). However cleaning out my Sons piggy bank and rolling the coins we came across a "Shiny 1973 penny". I have google... so that is what I did and up poped the 1974 aluminum penny, I hit the image button and THAT is what it looks like, Silver tint but 1973 not 1974 and no mint mark. I hope the picture of it uploaded for you to view. ANY help would help..... Thank you for your time!
