Hello everyone, I found this cent at work and thought it was a little odd. One side is so worn that only the outline of Lincoln is visible, and the backside is pretty sharp. Is this an error, or did one side get more worn than the other somehow? Thanks! The coin weighs 3.01 grams.

I will go ahead and say this is an error of a possible split planchet, pre 1982 cent. At least I am not calling this post mint damage . I am sure others might add something here.

Well, big congrats on your amazing find, it looks like a struck thru capped die ( it is not a split planchet considering the weight is correct) and carry's a nice premium, it is not an every day find.Put in in a 2x2

Seems to have a pattern? Struck through some type of clothe?

I'll vote for struck through something (cloth or what ever) the coin still has its proto rim and was not fully formed during the strike. So, I'll say Mint Employee generated error.

Maybe they accidentally struck it with a cloth cover on one of the dies?

Cloth has a lot stronger pattern:

Also the rim is stronger on the Struck through cloth:

I feel this is a struck though a late stage die cap. Not a die cap as it would be distorted into a different shape:

How do you account for the pattern look?

If this it is the really color of the coin, I will say tinny planchet -0.1 grams less and improper mix of alloy, given more bronze color. Then I will say struck through a late caped die. The patterns I see are symmetric and due to the well know that in the mint they use cotton cheese tissue for clean the dies will be not a surprise for me to add also this hypotheses.

About the color to be clear for all's. In that time the alloy was 95% CU and 5% zinc and tin. Improper mix planchets give bronze if more tin was present instead of the cooper alloy derivate. This happened more on the begin of the roll.
