Hello CoinTalk! I have trolled these forums for a couple of days and decided to finally make my first post. I didn't know if this is an error coin so I posted it here. About 8 months ago I was searching through some 1943 Steel Pennies and came across this 1953 Wheat Penny. At first sight, it looked like a high grade Steel Penny due to the color (I'm guessing that's why it was in my Steel Pennies). I looked at the 1953 date and I knew it wasn't a Steel Penny (the sound by dropping it and the feel were dead giveaways as well). I have never seen a Penny like this one before. The composition is definitely copper/zinc/tin (95/5) and it weighs in at 3.2g. I have no clue as to what caused this anomaly. I'm almost certain that the Penny isn't painted because I found a 1941 S Wheat Penny in the same group that was crudely painted silver and it was quite obvious. I have two scans of the coin @850dpi, but they really don't do the coin much justice. There is a high amount of detail on the coin and it is quite shiny but doesn't show up well in my scans (waves in the hair of Lincoln can still be easily seen and on the reverse the wheat leaves are highly detailed as well). I have my assumptions about the coin, but being pretty new to numismatics, I figured I would give CoinTalk a try. I'm hoping this is a mint mistake or some type of toning and not damaged or altered by another person, but it is what it is. Thank you in advance for any information you can provide!
