I apologize for being a bit of an amateur about posting all of this. And I do not have a lens that will focus as closely as I would like. So I am hoping that you can zoom in on the pics. But it is clear that this a 1989 penny and it is clad not electroplated, as the layers are visible completely around the edge and can actually be felt
to the op
be careful with this coin and take good care of it . I think you may have a awesome find here . this coin just flat out screams cent struck on clad dime planchet. I can't believe the other posters missed this . the copper center is a dead giveaway that this is probably on a dime planchet.
welcome to the coin talk forum
looks like you may have partially solved this one without seeing the photos. you sure did pretty good with this one rick .
Are we looking at the same picture?
I seriously doubt it. This is nothing but a coated cent. Throw it in with the rest of the junk.
No not really , a cent struck on a clad dime planchet is easily identified by looking at the clad layers on the edge of the coin. I suppose weighing one would help to further clarify it.
Do you have stock in one of the grading companies? I think a blind man could tell it's not what you say it is.
Well darn it don't blame me , old Rascal my little jack russel terrier told me what he thought it was.I may have to fire him if he got this one wrong.
