Parking Lot Find

I found this coin in the parking lot outside of Denny's so I thought I would post it here.

Post your parking lot coins or at least ones that look like they were found in a parking lot.

    If that were on ebay, it would be titled 'Rare silver core cent'... and listed for $1000.... :D;) Cheers, RickO

    What am I looking at here? The sharp looking scratches in the Zinc make it look like damage after striking. The lack of copper plate extends above that area but given what looks like post strike damage I find this very suspect.

    The last time I went shopping at the used Sherman Tank store down the street, I found this in the lot. :wink:

    Now that’s worthy of being listed on eBay. Or at the very least, Etsy. Lol

    LOL. Found it already slabbed eh...
    Cool piece. End of plated planchet strip?

    Wouldn't the planchet strips be unplated? I would have guessed the copper plating happens after punching blanks from a strip. Otherwise the rims would not be plated and show the zinc core.

    It was a damaged planchet prior to striking. The OP is joking around :D

    Took me half an hour to remember where I parked it...

    Better put it back before the guy who dropped it comes looking for it.

    I got one of my very best "unfortunate toners" from a roll...that Loomis obviously collected from a parking lot.
