Gold silverish super shiny 2009 penny???? HELP!

#1 Unread post by tabitha.parker » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:36 pm

I am still fairly new to coin collecting, I found this in a handrolled penny roll... I can't seem to find any information about it... looks super interesting hoping somebody can tell me a little more about it... there is doubling I can see under my jewellers loop... but what gets me is the super thick edges that are a silvery color while the rest of it appears to be a goldfish color...

This coin has been damaged and the copper plating has been rubbed off and that revealed the zinc planchet. It looks like a coin that was in a dryer for a while and called a dryer coin.
