Hello all... I can't get my phone to take a decent picture (it's a crappy phone without high enough resolution ) so I'm hoping someone can post some photos of pennies struck on a dime planchette so I can see if what I have is that, or possibly someone just filed down the penny till it weighed 2.2 ... It almost looks like a photo negative... That's the best way I can think to describe it. With copper and silver tie-dye ... But it's definitely a Lincoln head... 1997D. Any help or possibilities would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds like an acid dipped coin. They used to convert cents into dimes to use in the pop machine years ago. The vending machines were 7 cents for a 7 oz Bottle. 10 bottles and then cans later were 10 cents.

Probably dated before 1965?

To CCF! Getting pictures of your coin would be very helpful. Otherwise, we're left guessing.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. The soda pop money sounds about right. Once I get a little more set up I'll be posting a lot of pictures with a lot of questions. So thank you for your patience and your time
