cent struck on unplated foreign zinc planchet
- I've posted in the "off-metals" album an image of a 1998 cent struck
on an unplated foreign zinc planchet. It weighs 2.05g. The absence
of plating appears to be an error, as a thin dusting of copper can be
seen on both faces under magnfication.
This coin was erroneously slabbed by ANACS as an unplated elliptical
You don't see too many foreign planchet errors in which the planchet
itself is wrong even for the country it was destined for.
