My wife found this 1963 Lincoln cent. It looks to have some silver, zinc or maybe aluminum in it. I can't find a mint mark. Anyone have any info on this?

My dad used to collect coins. I'd look it up in one of his books but they are a couple thousand miles away right now. I remember that he used to think there was nothing special about those pennies. That doesn't mean there is nothing special about YOUR penny though.

Are you sure it isn't a 1943 Lincoln penny? They didn't make them out of copper that year due to war shortages.

Yes try to see if its a 1943 like Mark H suggested. The war pennys have gone up a lot in the past few years. Try going to www dot PCGS dot com and finding the date. On the main page you will see a daily price report. A 1943 on PCGS-MS-65 is currently $6.00. Thats is in near flawless condition and only then if graded by PCGS. There are other gradeing services but coins graded by them generally trade for less. You might go to eBay and do a search then track a couple of auctions for the same coin/date to get a real world feel of the value of your find.

They made steel pennies during WW2 as mentioned. Some time around the mid sixties, pennies were changed from pure copper to copper clad zinc. I think that the year was 1964 when this started, but I am just working off of my memory here. Pennies after 1964 can show silvery sections of zinc if the copper is worn off.

A more likely scenario is that someone dropped the penny into photographic fixer. I have done this before myself. The copper will self plate with silver from the photographic chemicals. The plating thickness is less than .001 inch thick and will generally wear off rapidly. It is also possible that it could be coated with some other metal like the tin used in printed circuit board processing shops. This plating can also take place if a kid uses the penny as a cathode in a school battery experiment.

There are some extremely rare mint errors where the blank for a dime or nickel gets run through the coining press for the penny. This will form a penny out of the silvery metal. These are extremely rare and would be worth up to several thousand dollars if that is what it is. These are snapped up by collectors in short order and it is very unlikely that one has been in circulation for forty years.

If you can send me some pictures of the coin, I will try to guess what it is. Also, any coin dealer in your town will be able to tell you. Just don't sell it if they want to buy it until you get a second opinion.

Thanks guys. It is a 63. I think AC most likely told the story. It really looks like it got discolored with something.
