I found this penny in my daughter's piggy bank. I've not been able to find anything on it. Does anyone know about this?
It's a 1987 silver penny with a flag in front of Lincoln's face!?

Sorry, there's no 1987 silver pennies. Probably someone had a little fun with the penny, stamped it with a flag and probably plated with another metal. Can you show us a picture?

It certainly didn't look like that when it was struck.
It was done after it left the mint. Just a novelty coin now.

Been counterstamped and then plated.
Not sure if it was for a special occasion or not.
