    1975 Penny

    I recently came across a 1975 penny that is gold colored and has the date 12-31-74 stamped above the 1975 date. Has anyone ever heard or seen this before? I can't find out anything about it on the internet. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

    A google search found two other inquiries just like yours... as far back as a few years ago, on other boards... No replies, just the question.

    Re: 1975 Penny

    I found a 1977 that was like that while roll hunting, I was told that there was a very common chemistry experiment done during high-school chemistry classes that caused the transformation. Some sort of demonstration of chemical changes.
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    yea this is chemistry experiament where you pull the outer shell of the penny off to get to the Zinc core at which point is dropped into some boiling liquid I dont remeber the exact contents. but it produces a Golden Penny that looks exactly like the copper outer shell we see everyday.
