Looks like someone missed a step here. Is this just an error coin? weighs 1.9 grams. This also has a wide "AM"

Hi, sirguardian. The design for Lincoln penny 2001 is a wide "AM". It looks like your coin had been dip in a corrosive material which caused a decrease in weight (1.9 grams) from the weight of 2.5 grams.

Enjoy the hobby...

All of my 2001 cents have a "close" AM. I'm not sold on the corrosive theory. The edges are to consistent. The marred portions look like the results from heat during press. This coin is thin as a dime but it's not a Mule type. I need to investigate further. I'm just curious, I have never seen this.

Looks like acid/environmental damage to me.

Got it... closer look on the AM is questionable for the condition... still a keeper here. Thanks guys.

The FG initials show it to be a normal closed AM reverse for that year.

with John1, environmental or acid damage. No mystery found here. PMD, not a keeper.

No monetary value... but a teachable product for the young ones behind me. Thanks

Jim0815 Can you expand on your last. My view I see separation on AM. You say this is normal for 2001?

Note the roughness of the zinc addition over the plating on this coin. Altered surface. Not a mint error.

I agree that it is a close AM.
There are other markers to go by besides the AM.
Sometimes die polishing can cause a slight gap but it is still a CAM.
As far as the missing copper, I agree with John1, the coin is too light
to be missing the copper clad at the planchet stage.

Roger that. It makes sense. I will put it in my "Odd Ball" collection with a short caption. Thanks
