what causes this?


Reprocessing, which is a bad thing.

It doesn't really have that high gloss shine for a reprocessed cent , but at this time I can't think of any other reason why it would look like this . So I'll go with reprocessed .

Agree, not the usual look, but must have been plated.

This cent actually came out of a Wells Fargo roll from the late 50's early 60s that my late grand father had several of I have read that some of the old roll wrappers possibaly could cause this toning it there any truth to that
