@sou, almost certainly just a regular Wheat cent, but can you please add the weight of this coin to this thread?

Also could you please show a photo of the obverse instead of showing two of the reverse.
We don't even know what year it is. It is important to show both sides of the coin when posting.

I imagine you are showing some of a Lincoln type subset that includes a zinc coated Steel 1943 Wheat cent and a Lincoln Wheat cent that was minted by using melted down spent ballistic shell casings for planchets or blanks which do have an off color appearance from the pre war and post 1944 and 1945 bronze cents.

The shell case cent (probably) looks to have either damage near the rim or much less likely an error.

Look like run of the mill wheat cents to me, one of which is horribly damaged.

The 2nd and forth images are showing coin damage on the rim/edge area. Just a damaged coin now.
