    So are the insides of that coin copper or not, I mean is it a counterfeit? Looks strange!

    The correct term is blow hole. The coin you bought is damaged and worn from wear. It was worth the $10.00 if you learn from this mistake.

    From the concave denting around the hole on the reverse, in conjunction with the convex bulging and flattening on the obverse, it looks pretty likely it was struck with force from the reverse to make the hole. PMD

    Check out the listings on EBay under Holed Cents..
    There are many of them.

    You paid $10 for this cent and now you're gonna spend it like a bad penny????

    If you just want to get rid of your money, I can think of several people, places, or things to spend it on :
    St. Jude's Cancer Hospital for Children,
    Shriner's Crippled Children's Hospital,
    your local Food Bank,
    the PTA of your child's school,
    etc.

    Something I learned long ago : "Waste Not, Want Not" .

    i am ok with that, they spend 60-95% of their money on administration and advertising for more money less than 10 cents of any dollar donated goes to help anyone...i like coins, some people like horses, some like cars, i prefer to buy coins thank you very much, charities can go make their own money like i have to...charity starts at home!!

    Sure.. Everyone is entitled to an opinion..
    But sometimes a simple THANK YOU would be appreciated and/or suffice.
