@too, best practice is to start a new thread for each new coin, so I have split your replies off into their own topic. For now, I'll keep both of these together. Folks wanting to reference the original thread can find it here:

As others have said, you need to weigh it. Try to do it on a scale that has A resolution of at least 0.1 grams (0.01 is better).

It's not uncommon for cents to be plated after they leave the mint. One example is School chemistry classes. They sometimes do plating experiements to teach the concepts of electrochemistry. The advantage is that the test sample is cheap and the student gets to take the experiment home after class. Unfortunately, some tend to enter circulation and confuse collectors who get them in change

Hope this helps

Weight is definitely important here. The first coin looks like a possible clipped error but it's hard to tell from the pics because they could be PMD tool marks.

As for the dime if it is not magnetic then there is something off about it for sure. Please add weights for both coins but post the dime in a seperate thread as not to confuse members that are trying to help.

If the magnetic test is correct you should have at least two off metal strikes. When you get the weights confirmed someone may be able to match the planchets used.
The one cent coin looks like it has a weak strike and the the collar didn't have enough metal to completely form the 12 sides of the cent so I'd expect it could very well be on a ten cent planchet.
The ten cent coin I'll reserve judgement for now.

Cheers, Bill

Can you also post an obverse pic for the dime? Whether it be here on in a seperate thread. It almost looks like 1962 based on the pictures which would make it silver and non magnetic.

I will try to post better pics of these. The off metal cent is slabbed so I can't weigh.

Please use these steps to determine the penny's planchet:
Weight
Is it reeded? If yes, it may be a dime planchet
Does it have multiple edges? If yes, it is most likely a penny planchet
And also, many schools have students plate pennies as an experiment.

First of all it's not a Penny but a Cent. The Cent will not have reeding unless it was struck over a previously struck dime (double denomination). Therefore the subject cent will have the multiple edges. Since its magnetic, it is most likely struck on a dime planchet, however weight will probably determine the planchets origin.

The 1c definitely looks like it was struck on a 10c planchet.

However, the 10c was not struck on a 1c planchet, as it would be too big to fit inside the collar die. The Royal Canadian Mint did strike coins for other countries however, and if you have the weight for the 10c, I can probably tell you which country's planchet it was struck on.
