Does anyone have any info on a steel/metal looking 1992-d penny that I have because it seems as though no one has ever heard or seen it before ?

to CCF. Need better pics please. Front and back as well as weight. Does it attract to a manganate? Might be plated after it left the mint, or might have missed the copper plating from the mint supplier.

@JG1516, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes having the weight will be super important for us to help you. Please add that information to this thread. Thx.

Appears to have proper luster, I think this is actually a cent struck on a non-plated planchet. I think you have a real one.

Weight isn't really going to tell you anything as a plated or non-plated cent will almost certainly be within tolerance.
