This was a Christmas gift. It's a 2022 Lincoln Shield Cent. Is this burnishing balls? If not than what? I'll appreciate any help. I'm new to this. I've collected wheat pennies all my life but only recently looked closer at them and am now discovering a whole new world of coin collecting. I just don't know what to call this.

Looks like the coin was heated and the balls of metal might be zinc or solder.Not an error, PMD.

I'm not even sure if cents are burnished, but they certainly aren't after minting. Agree, looks like solder.

To me, it looks like someone turned a blowtorch on a zincoln. The zinc melted, burst through the copper skin, and resolidified in little droplets of formerly molten zinc.

This coin was under very pointed fire and melt. Some goldsmith play?

Noting in the minting process could make this. Its PMD like has been said.

Did you all know there is a burnishing ball error on a dollar planchet though? I'd never heard of it.




Cool stuff.
