I got an interesting 'error' coin (so to speak) a few months back. Sadly I can't post a photo these days because I don't have a camera.

 

It's a UK 2p coin, copper plated steel. But the copper plating has flaked off of the obverse so the head of Lizzie is mostly bare steel, but there's copper plating around the legend areas. It almost looks like a bimetallic issue. There are no scraping marks, so I presume the plating just didn't take.

I got a new (2009) penny that looks as if it's been coated by one of those school chemistry experiments, so it appears brass. Might as well keep it for the sake of a penny.
