Can someone help me? I've got an 1888 cent that is obviously not bronze. Damage aside, what does anyone think this coin could be worth? Is this the real deal? Thank you.
We will need a photo to judge the color,
and since you just joined, you won't be able to post a photo for a day or two.
OK thank you.
it could have been dipped in something to change color
what color is it?
Hopefully it hasn't been dipped in mercury.
While we wait for pictures, weigh the piece and let us know it's weight.
Probably plated. As mentioned, start with the weight.
@kastratit336 ... Welcome aboard (and I hope the process was not painful ).... As above, post pictures in a couple of days and we will help you. Cheers, RickO
Hello all, here are pictures of the coin. I'm not at home but will weigh it when I can. Thank you.
Looks like a replica to me. If somebody were to offer a nickel for it, take the money and run.
plated, pitted and holed
put it back on the jewelry it once was
Plated as a novelty item.
Not an error of any kind or type.....sorry
Thank you all.

Too many problems to list.
