*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***

SPP I know you might help me to understand. how a pure steel coin . that is painted black would have yellow letters and numbers. I am wondering is there some thing a chemical. that could change the color of metal to some other color like yellow. anybody that has and understanding of metals.

thank you guys. I know what it is. its metal plating added to the coins surface. thank you guys so much. see the white around the press digit through. that did not make senses, with yellow tops. plus all that darn proofing black paint crazy. see the steel is a perfect mirror. so I know what all of this is . I can tell you I have never read about one of them coins ever being plated. but this is thank you all have a great day. see you have to light this coin so hard. its almost impossible to photograph because of that darn reflective steel.

You have lost us all with no photo. You keep talking about a coin and plating, but we have no idea what you are talking about.

okiecoiner first hello I am Trying to picture this coin. its the light that is why I am going to try axial lighting. that way you can see what I see ok . I will get this done so you guys can see this coin as well. its weird you see it. its not Canadian. I wanted to know about steel. I worked alot with all metals. the steel on this coin is so brilliant. see the paint is dull but that laquer is also there so this was done at a mint. I will show you. and by the way nice to here from you . I hope all is well with you.

we know what it is its a reaction form the steel ,Vinz and varnish . its like a mild rust that appears yellowish. you can see the plain steel of the rim. here is a image this is a 1943 steel penny D . the other coin I have is painted black. why the difference.

Um, we'd kind of need some zoomed-out pics, to see the whole coin.

Blowing up something 30-50 times with a microscope, blasting it with light and then taking a picture puts everything out of whack, especially since someone painted it black. Of course, steel is going to appear silvery and shiny against the black and also certainly, some exposed steel will show the beginning oxidation with rust. I still have no idea why this is so interesting or questionable.

it still looks like metal plating to me. so it would have to be brass or gold. even bronze can look yellow by heat.

so the second strike is on top the first with shift plus a crack from the top strike excellent. that is plating under varnish.

This thread is a little confusing. Rocky, are you saying the coin was plated (which would be post mint) or are you saying it's an error coin? I'd like to see full pictures of the coin so I can have a better understanding of what your explaining.
