I took another pic
Here is another pic with a red and a gold.
Imformation I found on brass plated strikes.
1983 "Brass Plated Strikes" 1c 1983 cents struck on "brass plated planchets" were confirmed by the Mint officials and that information published in Coin World's, May 23, 1983 Collector's Clearinghouse written by Marilyn Van Allen).
There were also brass plated strikes from these years,
here is a better picture
Here is a much better picture with my digital camera, using the scanner does not show the brass color.
I am aware of the brass planchet cents you mention although I have never personally seen one. But the cent you posted the pic of - I have a dozen or so of the very same color in my loose change jar. To me - it just looks like a normal, new cent. With new cents, some of them have the darker, more reddish color - some of them have the gold color like yours.
Now your coin may indeed be a brass planchet - but based on the pic and the color alone I do not think so. Have you weighed the coin ? Perhaps that would provide additional info.
