    I read some classroom science experiments are done to change the color of copper. They use different chemicals on the surface then use heat to create the colors. They can also plate the copper cents.

    How accurate are the colors in the photo? The white balance looks off.

    If my memory hasn't gone completely bananas, I think I remember duplicating this color about 60 years ago using a pencil eraser.

    Yes, @paddyman98 , it was a little before your time. ~ Chris ;)
