I'm inclined to believe older coins found in circulation that are in cull condition like this are intentionally spent by dealers or collectors, or those who had them evaluated and were told what they have isn't worth much more than face value. Either way, old ones like this are cool to find when they turn up!
My Dad said he found some Flying Eagle cents in circulation when he was younger, but that was back in the 1950s.
Probably, wrong electromagnetic signature and way too heavy to be a cent as far as the machine is concerned.
That’s more in line with what I was thinking...
