1957 5 Centavos Wrong Planchet Error

#1 Unread post by rcosta43 » Wed Feb 05, 2020 7:07 am

Hello, hope everyone is well. I have a 1957 5 Centavos which appears to be struck on a copper nickel planchet opposed to the brass planchet used for this type. The coin weighs 3.9 grams. Can anybody provide some thoughts/insights. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Rick

Did you weigh it. We can't tell you if it is using images.

My mother had a charm bracelet with a bunch of foreign coins on it that had been holed and then plated to keep them shiny. One of them looked like this.
