Hi

I think it may have been cleaned at one time.

Wait for a copper expert to confirm.

If your asking about the middle pictured coin I would also say cleaned. The top coin looks to be an Unc maybe AU for grade. The bottom coin looks like a natural brown coin. All three coins are large dates

Colors commonly change on copper and bronze coins more rapidly than with other metals. In most cases the color differentiation is simply linked to where the coins have been.

It looks like someone used the pencil eraser method to clean it.

That was my thought as well.

Is the date doubled?

Looks like it may be machine doubling, but can't tell.
My name is Devin, and I have been collecting now, for around 2 years. I love early American coppers. I set up at coin shows and sell on eBay with my dad (I own most of the coins we sell, and he owns most of the currency), and most of all... I have fun!

Visit my eBay store, I have lots of BINS and auction style listings:
