Could this be a foreign planchette?

    So I got this 1998 D LMC in my change today that’s larger than the normal cent.

    However, it still the proper weight for this coin.

    I also sandwiched the coin between to normal LMC so you can get a better idea, and I placed another LMC directly above so you can see the outline of the coin underneath.

    Comments welcome! PS: I hope you all are in good health, and I wish y’all a Merry Christmas and a great New Year!

    They call it a Texas Cent.. It was smashed and enlarged.. Which means it was altered after it left the mint.

    It's been de-plated

    The copper plating has been removed,
    after the coin was in circulation.

    Not an error of any kind, I'm sorry to say.
