Some rolled in debris left, some got hotter than the plating. Above ONE CENT.

  5. Yup. It is 2.6 grams, so the early proof 1983’s that received two platings had the strength to hold it in.
  6. This double plating early proof 1983 Lincoln Cent reference comes from NGC’s early 1982 Zinc Lincoln Cent article.

    1983 was probably the worst year for this type of plating problem.

    I heard that when they went to zinc they had problems with dies because of the metal it flows differently this went on for years also for the plating because now how many good nice looking zinc coins are there. You will notice it seems like they tried different things smaller dates different color platings I just love that deep red one they did. As time goes goes by it is getting harder to find good condition pennies because of ZINKZILLA.

    Your cent is not a proof it is a business strike.
