I have checked the edge and we still have a silver look
Absolutely no copper or bronze look
But it has an overall steel look rather than silver
As it has no magnetic attraction (and I used a huge magnet) the look
Has me still gobsmacked compared to the other pennies - same era
Someone's been clever

Hi all
Maybe stupid question!
Could it be lead?
That's a silver looking material that's non magnetic ?
There's something very diff with this coin - it looks steel

Copper nickel coins are non magnetic, even with 25% nickel in the alloy.

If it's the same diameter and thickness as other 1906 pennies, it would weigh a lot more if it were lead.

See that little ding on the edge above and to the left of Britannia's head? Take a q-tip with some soapy water on it and see if you can clean that area.

It may show what's underneath if it was plated before it was dinged.
