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?
