I have 2 1974 new pennies both are different colour. Can anyone tell me if they are rare or worth any thing?

No, unfortunately. 300 million were issued. Old copper can be coloured almost black due to various environmental factors.

thank you for the info Both these coins were stored in the same place in the same packaging I don't understand why they are different colours as you say due to environmental conditions. I can't remember what they looked like when I stored them. What I am understanding then is that a penny can change colour due to who and where it is handled. It did not originate that colour.
