See that silver lookin' color shinin' thru on the edge there? Must be platinum. Yep. Platinum. No doubt about it. See them little pockmarks all over the place? Strikethroughs. Every one of 'em. A platinum core penny with dozens of strikethrough errors, that's what this is. Oh, and it has a P mintmark, but this is one of the rare ones made at Pittsburgh, not Phillydelphia.
