Your fiscal years are backwards.

Fiscal 1940 would have started Oct. 1st, 1939 and ended on September 30th 1940. Therefore those coins minted for Panama would have been dated 1939 and 1940. There is litterally no way for a coin minted in fiscal 1940 to be dated 1941.

As for the weights, I'm just relying on published data. Though there may be a way to verify with earlier years. When the new Mint director took over in the 30s, she was a political hack and the Directors report was slashed in half to just the absolute bare minimum necessary.

I'm saying it's on the FY1940 report for whatever the reason, not on FY1941 report. Perhaps it was right on the edge of the two years and they started minting 1941 cents, I wasn't there.l to see it with my own eyes on how it went. Maybe the made the Panama coins in 1940 and a planchet hung around until 1941 Lincoln cent minting.


I can tell you this. The 1941 cent on a Panama planchet is not on a bronze planchet and neither the Panama 1-1/4 cetesimos or the DR 1 centavo are the same color as the wrong metal coin graded by PCGS.
The error coin is not on a bronze planchet and it's clear in pictures of it its not bronze.

For me that's what ended my research into it. I assume it's the 2-1/2 centesimos copper nickel planchet because that's what the color appears to be most like.
Check other places for the DR 1 centavo weight. This was also struck on u.s. Lincoln cent planchets just like the Panama 1-1/4 cetesimos.

I can only go by what I can gather from multiple sources of information and come up with my best guess on how it might have went, but when I saw the example coin itself it became clear to me it's a wrong metal error and not just a weight issue alone.

I have not checked but it could have been done in fiscal 42, as it started in Calender 41.

I can buy them being struck on US cent planchents, as that was the easiest thing to do. Especially for Panama. The US mint did mint a number of odd coins. I have a 1937 cent that is ridiculasly thin and light.

Good luck in your research

BRONZE Wheaty? Very Yellow Tone? WRONG PLANKET?
