How did this coin get the maroon color it has on obverse? Never seen one this extreme.

Doesn't look like any brown I've had ever.

I would say it's environmental damage. Exactly what caused it will likely never be known.

Are the 1969 S Business strikes have any value?

In that condition, it would be worth the value of the copper.
Probably about Two Cents.

Exposure to an environmental agent (or two). I've searched through endless mountains of Lincoln cents over the years. While the maroon look isn't wildly plentiful, they are out there--particularly full copper cents.

Made at the San Fran Mint as a joke.

Could it have been painted brown (or what ever color that is) and is being worn off the high points to reveal the true color that lies beneath?
