The ones imaged, No. when the plating solution is formulated it includes a small percentage of zinc, as the levels are topped up there becomes slightly above normal levels in the mix, this is what causes a quantity of coins in the production run to have a brass like look. when the zinc levels become to high a new batch of plating solution is produced and for a while the coins take on a more copper looking appearance. This is my understanding of the cause, and, as stated above, the others are just naturally toned
like the ones on the left?
are they consider "red"?
The grading companies rank them as RD, RB and B. For older coins, the RD carries quite a premium in most cases. I'll look for an example.
I'm just curious, what about these coins do you think might add a premium to them? They are Zincoln's and unless they have a mint error, they are worth 1¢.
