Are people really that bored? Who wakes up and. Says today I think I'll buff me some pennies lol crazy, I guess me because I'm about to try for the hell of it lol. Thanks for your Input and happy holidays!
Lol, good question. People spent a lot less time on the internet when this coin was minted way back in '97. Must have been boring back in those days
Copper plated Zinc planchet. The core/center is mostly Zinc.
That would actually be the Zinc underneath the Copper coating
Zinc is Silvery in color
JIC.. @JCro57 Any thoughts?
Cool enough to hang onto, damaged or not.
It's my "asphalt Canadian Large Cent" type coin . . . . . . .
Nice! I will keep it
I also noticed faint little diagonal lines on the obverse side which I have seen on other Lincoln cents that had their original color. Wonder what that's from?
As for acid I think any used to remove the plating would have destroyed the zinc surface and details. That zinc crap rots in the open air, acid is a heck of a lot stronger than air, lol.
I'm thinking it looks like paint too.
Nice Hypothesis, however I tend to disagree probably because I have the coin in hand and can actually inspect the coin more closely vs a image or picture. Paint will chip off if you pick at it long enough. This coin I tried taking my finger nail to see if it could be scratched away, but nothing. I tried running it under water with a very mild soap and still nothing. It's quite puzzling. Thanks for having a look and giving your input!
You are absolutely right, that makes perfectly good sense logically idk!
