    Typical corrosion or something odd?

    Just thought I'd gather the experts opinion.

    Seemed a bit strange to me.

    Oh, if it helps, it weighs in at 4.69 grams.

    Thanks In advance for any thoughts.

    Post-mint damage and corrosion.

    Maybe someone was trying to alter a "P" into an "S"?

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    if it was dug, I would imagine it sat buried next to something made of iron such as the head of a nail

    Or, better yet, sandwiched together with a wheat penny.

    I think it's a fake

    Not modern fake but fake nonetheless

    Looks like a bronze/cooper coin with a silver bath and where it shows that patina it's a typical bronze one

    Near as I can tell, either this coin was lying next to something that caused a strange chemical reaction . Hence, the corrosion.

    *OR*... as I strongly suspect...something funky was being attempted. The corrosion itself seems understandable enough. But, for it to just co-ink-il-dinkily....be right over the mint mark. I suspect somebody was using acid to remove the mint mark. Maybe an attempt to create a Henning?

    In any regard, a truly interesting find in my book. Boy! If it could just talk!

    Here's a couple more for the heck of it.

    It looks like it might be 1943 over 1942 nickel, based on the barb on the bottom of the three, may just be the lighting or corrosion though. I have found war nickels with that type of corrosion, normally it is due to the large amount of copper in the silver alloy creating impurities within the metal, and then corroding. Remember, war nickels are only 35% silver, therefore they will not hold up as well as a 90% silver coin.
