Looks good to me. I dont think that one was tampered with to take the copper plating off. You can see the rust from the zinc being exposed for awhile.

I presume this is a cent that is missing the copper plating. It has the silvery color of the exposed zinc core. Because of its reactive nature the zinc will easily corrode which seems to be happening.

I don't think it is worth much but an error collector would likely be interested.

If that's rust, you're looking at some kind of plating,zinc does not rust.

I have couple of 1943 post mint plated stillers and would bet my intire collection how this one is not a plated cent but a regular cent that's missing the plating coat is all ! I think it ll be the 1st coin I ll send to slab . I have other zincoln and I see what you are saying Maine , I also always though zinc just don't rust at all but I worked in the automobilistic factory per years and I know how any metal sheet starts to rust in a matter of hours after simply be exposed to air !

From what I've gathered, it's a penny missing the copper plating....
Sweet!

How rare are these?

Sheet metal rusts because it is made of steel....zinc is a totally different animal, it will corrode,but not rust.They make anodes from zinc for boat motors and water heaters.
