Probably just plated, but sharper pics are needed.

Not an error if it is just plated.

It's been plated. That's Post Strike Damage ( PSD), not an error.

Chance. Due to tolerance ranges a cent can weigh anywhere from 2.98 grams to 3.24 grams A typical plating will add about .05 grams to the weight. So you can see that even with a plating the final weight will still most likely be within the tolerance range and will quite often weight the same as an unplated specimen.

Thanks Wonder I have come across plated coins I guess by inexperienced people they look plated this one does not. But I can see by what your saying if done properly it could be done with minimal plating and not look so bad. Thanks for the education that's why I love this forum.

Could be poor-man's plating = let the coin sit in very used jewelry cleaner for a few hours. It usually rubs off with just your finger.
