    Hi all,

    So I came across this penny and I'm wondering if anyone knows what's up with it.
    Did someone alter it or is it an alloy issue? The rim all the way around is bright like a brand news penny, and there's two spots on the coin that are the same bright color, while the rest of the coin looks like any other coin you'd find in change from the 1970's.

    Don't know if it's some sort of error or not, but it looks really cool at any rate. Thought I'd ask.

    Hi potty dollar, I kind of thought so but thought I'd check. I found a Jefferson Nickel that was bent in two directions and I knew it couldn't be an error, so I looked up "trick nickels," and found a video of a guy who does a trick where he bends the nickels in a device. It seems I find a lot of cool looking coins, and a few cuds here and there, and that's about it! lol
    I have an old digital microscope and it's really hard to get clear pictures. Sorry about the quality. :(

    Thank you for your response. Much appreciated.

    Actually looks like someone buffed it against a polishing cloth that only hit the highest places on the coin.
