This is difficult to photograph, but the color is more yellow or gold, and the surface is much smoother. I thought it was from a mint set? Doesn't look plated, just looks like a really good strike?

Change bank find, and it's just different from any other new cent in there.

Someone broke up a 2020 mint set and spent the cent?

Well mint set coins are just the same look of a normal business strike coin. Nothing special about them. Just put in a cello. But it looks normal to me.

It looks to me like it's already seen a fair amount of wear and so that might explain the color being slightly different?

Yes, the 2020 D appears to have been initiated into circulation--rubs and light scratches, given the photos posted.

I guess it's just a nice smooth, shiny penny and I'm not used to seeing those.

Guess who finally got a good scale?

Related to this, and yes I have found other shiny cents, along with very new frosted surface cents. Looks like the difference is just new and old.

1947-1962 bronze (95% copper, 5% tin and zinc) 48 grains 3.11
1962-1982 gilding metal (95% copper, 5% zinc) 48 grains 3.11
1982-present copper-plated zinc (97.5% zinc, 2.5% copper) 38.6 grains 2.5

There are 2.5gm cents that have a more copper color, not as smooth of a surface and then the 3.11 cents have more of a golden tone very smooth.

I couldn't find the thread, but 1962 these could be crossover compositions, but no way to tell beyond expensive testing.

The 1982 is easy, just keep weighing 1982 cents and hope I find one that's 3.11 gms.

Any other cent oddity that I can find as I check the weight of each of these, before they go to the coin counter at the bank?
