    I found this penny while counting my drawer at work I felt it before I saw it. Can anyone tell me if it is an error coin and if it is if like some more knowledge about it. It appears to have a silver ring before in it and the putter rim is completely smooth all the way around.

    Welcome to CT, Melanie.

    Lincoln, Shield Reverse, minted from 2010 to date are copper-plated zinc and plain edged. The “silver ring” is normal wear and tear, or PMD (post-mint damage). Worth face value only. This is a common occurrence with newer pennies...I’ve come across many.

    momma is correct, someone or something wore the thin copper plating off the high edge of the rim, exposing the zinc core, just damage..
