Found this curiosity today in a 3 pound bag of wheat pennies and not sure what to make of it. Weighs 3.1 grams, and not magnetic. I always love to learn new things and this one puzzled me. Any thoughts?
To CCF , Forget about how it got that color that's irrelevant right now . I just want to point out to all newbies that when you buy 3 pound bags or any bulk lot of wheat cents from e-Bay or Esty ,Craig's List, ETC . this is the kind of junk you are likely to get . Granted not every piece will be garbage , they'll throw in a couple of VF's or even a EF but most will be inferior coins .
