    Came across this Zinc Cent and noticed there is still a coating on the edge. Could someone explain this please? The Edge is clearly much thicker than normal. Yes, to Spooned! But still a edge coating on the coin. 20231223_082629.jpg 20231223_08_25_42.png 20231223_082614.jpg 20231223_082643.jpg

    Thinking maybe Vice? Causing a thickness without harming the edge?

    Hammering, or "spooning" a coin only "spreads" the metal, so the surface coating, copper in this case, would remain intact. Take some sandpaper to the edge and it will show the zinc.

    I bought a spooned coin yesterday. Quite interesting to me anyways.
