A variety of environmental conditions can influence a range of tonal shades, You can find copper cents in just about any colour you'd like. Definitely PMD.
No mintmark means it's from the Philadelphia mint.

Environmental damage or maybe improperly cleaned. When copper looks pinkish it most likely was cleaned with something acidic like mayonnaise or ketchup.

Yes, environmental damage, which may have included attempts at cleaning and a 'brief' exposure to an acid.

As merclover noted, the lack of a mint mark means that a cent was minted in Philadelphia, but also keep in mind that no coins minted in 1965-1967 had mint marks. This was part of the Coinage Act of 1965 that was passed to deal with a shortage of coins in the 60's.

Another exception is the 2017-P cent. It was issued to celebrate the 225th anniversary of the mint and had the P mint mark added to the coins.

For most years that would be true, not for 1966

Since not coins had mintmarks form 1965 to 67 you can't say the lack of a mintmark on this coin means it was made in Philadelphia. Philadelphia struck 811 million 1966 cents, but Denver struck 991 million and San Francisco struck 383 million so there is only a 40% chance that cent was struck in Philadelphia.

West point didn't strike cents until 1975. The SMS coins were struck in San Francisco.

US Cent figures:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linco...tage_figures
Intersting. It mentions the Lincoln Cents were showing mintage figures for also 1974-1986 from West Point but not showing a mintmark on them. It also mentions 2019-W Cents.
