    It was plated and has other weird things done to it hence a high school experiment,I doubt someone would fake a zilincon.

    It would help if the op can weigh it and do a magnet test.

    Looks like one of those mini coins they sell at shows.

    Doesn't stick to magnet. Had a magnet with me so went ahead and tested.

    How about better photos? I agree this looks phony, but your pictures look blurry on my end.

    It's a fake. Doesn't look anything like an authentic cent. Not even close

    I would bet on that. Way too many really weird design devices to be plating. I wonder if its the same size as a normal cent.

    It looks like a mini souvenir coin. Have you seen it in person or next to something of known size?

    If it is fake, and better pictures would help to discern this, it's possible it was made from a homemade casting for fun. I can envision an accurate impression being made with a genuine Lincoln cent and then the portrait in the mold toyed and monkeyed with prior to pouring.
