    This one is bronze and was not copper plated like a zincoln.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Try taking better pictures with the macro (flower symbol) feature. Most likely it is just plated, so 1 cent of value. If you post better pics, it may be something else, but I can't tell right now.

    probrably just painted/worn, though it is a copper, not a zinc, likely not worth more than 1c.

    Do you have a camera, or just your iPhone?

    Be very careful handling it, it may be coated with mercury. I did this back in the day with many cents, when I had no sense......nge

    put it in a metal frying pan or directly on your stovetop coil if you have the old kind (not the flat ceramic kind), if it turns from silver to gold its just a chemistry class experiment called "Magic Pennies".
