Can anyone help with this scenario? The Aluminum/Zinc exposed next to the lettering / numbering as pointed out in the picture above. What is this called and does it increase the value as an Error or devalue the coin?

Can't see anything in your photo,but it sounds like split copper plating. There is no aluminum in there,it is a zinc core. No added value.

Split copper plating doesn't affect the value of a cent directly. However, because the underlying zinc core is more reactive, it means that this cent will be nothing but dust at some point.

Hmmm...thanks for the feedback guys. This coin is extremely strong in the "strike" scenario...very nice coin and possibly a 68. I was thinking about sending it to get graded just for the heck of it. Putting in an air tight case will stop the "dust" possibility right?

Save your money and do not send it in. If you feel the need to keep it, a 2x2 will do just fine.

@103070, if you want to post high-quality pics in our grading section, you might get some feedback from folks as to the grade.

It's worthy as a learning tool.

Spenc,
