An unusual cent

I bought this on ebay a couple of weeks ago. Ebay item 270735344464.

The colour is a very unusual goldish silver.

I have had it in hand for a week or so now. I have tried the edge scratch test. It is much harder than a normal cent. Using a sharp needle I am unable to penetrate very far with repeated scratching. If it is plated it is plated with something as hard or harder than needle steel.

I am now awaiting delivery of an microgram scale to weigh it.

Any thoughts? If it is plated, it is a fabulous job.

One for metal analysis SPP?
