    Looks like some creative etching with acid, to expose the zinc core underneath.

    Unless it's just paint.

    Welcome to CT!

    Looks like paint to me from that photo.

    On another note. It isn't a good idea to put your email address or any personal info in a thread.

    I reported that to the moderators. They'll probably remove the email address and notify the OP as to the reason.

    No need to say sorry. You can post your email address but the moderators advise against it. It's for your own protection. They'll explain it.

    Ask one of the moderators how to post photos. @GDJMSP; @desertgem; @lordmarcovan. Or other members will tell you how. I've never posted a photo so I can't explain it.

    FYI - The next time you quote someone who has posted their e-mail address, you should delete that address from the quote yourself. It saves the mods the trouble of checking all related posts.

    I'm surprised nobody has cast a vote in the poll yet.

    At this moment, "?" has no votes, but "?" has 2 votes. It's a questionable race!

    I feel extremely confident "?" will come out the winner.

    Isn't that the year they went off copper in the penny?

    A local engineer our family knew was part of that effort to take the last remaining coin off real metal.

    I didn't vote. You would think the OP knew what he was doing since he has been a member for two years.

    As for the OP coin, at first I thought someone scraped or acid etched the plating off Abe. If it has been painted over, as suggested, putting it in acetone should remove it. Even though it is damaged, it is going to be worth 1 cent in either case, and probably not worth bothering with. Plus it looks cool this way.
    As for the non photos, I doubt the 1943 steelie has legitimate doubled die doubling.
    But let's take a look at the 1994 quarter, because you never know.

    I'm not computer savvy so I don't know how to delete something from another persons post. (I'd appreciate your telling me how to do this). Also, I don't think I quoted anybody, all I did was write a reply to whatever they posted.

    I had. I voted for "?".

    I'll leave you to guess which "?". :hilarious:

    Only moderators can edit another person's post, for obvious reasons.

    FWIW, when I replied, mine was the only reply, soon after the thread was posted, and I did not see any email address or personal information in the OP.
