Interesting coin show find


Recommended Posts

Sounds like a normal wheatback got stuck in with some of those re-zinc plating lots of 1943's. My thought, is it's essentially ruined, other than maybe a conversation coin.

This should be interesting. Will you get it certified?

 

I don't think it would certify - it's not a true steel cent and the surfaces are as unoriginal as can be. In its current form it's a deceptive coin. The less informed may think they have a rarity when they in fact have a common cent that's been plated.

I think that's neat that it could have been an accidental replating of one of Littleton's 1943 re-zinc'd deals.
