1993 "silver plated/zinc?" penny

Recommended Posts

So, my parent's have asked me to look into this further. And through my searches I've come to this forum for some advice, to help me figure out the value (if any) that this penny has.


I've read that, there are some silver plated pennies, that aren't of much value.

And that there are some zinc pennies, that never made it to the copper plating stage and are said to be rare?


It's non-magnetic, and doesn't seem to have any marks or anything showing that the copper plating was removed or anything.


Is there any tests I can do to help figure out what this actually is?

Measurements would be a good place to start. Diameter, thickness and weight can tell you if coating has been added and such.
