Hi. New to the coin game. But definitely enjoy it. Can any one tell me what's up with this 1994 Penny I got in some change the other day? Thanks

The 1994 has been modified post mint and has been cleaned, this can't happen at the mint.

Another thing is the 1994 is zinc plated and the other is a copper planchet. The colors can present differently when they have been soaked/abused.
