@Mrzllewellyn, it could be that someone stripped off the copper plating leaving behind just the zinc core. How much does this coin weigh?

Copper plating stripped off using chemicals and electricity. It's a chemistry expirement in high school/college Chemistry class setting.

what's the copper showing through on the reverse? Seems to me you have a copper plated zinc cent that was then over plated with another zinc layer (Post Mint) - that's my guess. Or "Little Johnny" got some silver paint.
You should always collect within your income, even if you have to borrow to do so.

Underneath them holes - that's what your picture shows!
Realistically you should throw things like this right in the garbage and spend your time on credible error coins that are actually worth a few cents. JMO.

Look, it's obviously not from the mint. Watch my video, it's a science expirement. It's either zinc over copper like Mark said or copper being stripped to reveal zinc underneath (like I said).

@crazybo- sorry, didn't think about little johnnie and providing him with material

And

@OP, it's 'matte' becuase of the subsequent circulation after the expirement.
