What is that, off metal error or...?

This 2006 cent was found in circulation. It is light yellow in color. See picture (on the left) and regular cent for comparison purposes is on the right. What it could be? Wrong alloy or something else? Are there similar known? What do I do with it, is it possible that it is rare? Thank you in advance.

Brass Plated. Some times the alloy process the mint uses results in Brass planchets... I search cents fairly regularly to pass an hour when I have it to spare, and find them on occassion.... I keep them as interesting coins only, unsure of the value,,,, as always, it's worth what someone is willing to pay. Don't think I've found any 06's, but have some from the late 90's and maybe 1 or 2 from the early 00's. Keep it ! Check out Ken Potters site,,,, he sells them.

I think you are 100% right and this is Brass plated cent. I'll keep it as interesting coin.
