    What exactly do you think is there ?
    If it is for example a close am then it is not there because that is what is expected on those .
  4. The color is way off

    Oh, I see. Well I am certainly not an expert , but coins will take on darker colors out in the wild for many reasons.
    Mainly due to environmental reasons.
    Contact with various things such as
    oh, chemicals and such.
  7. I don't know
    I was wondering if there might be a reason it is a different color..
    None of the other cents I've seen are this color
  8. G..thanks for helping

    I can't answer your question. My only academic experience was teaching a 3
    week course in Chinese calculus to dyslexic pigmies from the southern
    Amazonian basin while at the central
    university of the northern Anchilles.

    Zincolns tone in many colors. IMO your coins appear to be normal. No added premium.

    In case any one was wondering, I did not set out to respond with a smart aleck response to that post. I tried to throw out some general info based on my limited knowledge. But I soon got the feeling I was being trolled. I can't
    believe some one never got change from a cashier and didn't notice the pennies looked different in color.
    Really ? I probably noticed that when I was 5 years old.

    For 1998 to 2000, it's the Wide AM that we should be on the lookout for.

    Just environmental toning and nothing special. You should probably also weigh your coins on a good scale to see if there is a significant weight difference.

    Don't worry about it. I remember going to a coin dealer 'back in the day' with some very pretty-colored coins, and when asked what I thought was the issue with them I told him that the colors were unusual. Well, the response wasn't the nicest or what I'd hoped for. Sometimes it's best to do what research you can on your own before you come to places like this, but this IS a good place to come to when you need to. Keep your eyes open!

    Looks like a brass plated cent, where zinc was present in the plating solution and dissolved into the solution over time.

    I now know I have encouragement here
