Lg Canadian penny

Post by 8unclebuck8 » Mon Mar 30, 2020 5:55 am

Hi! Has anyone ever seen a early 1900 lg Canadian penny that is completely silver in Color? I have several hundred assorted coins , but they are usually a dark brown in color. I have only ever seen this one.

This post needs to be moved to the appropriate forum. If you have a cent that is silver, someone either plated it or coated it with mercury, which really adheres. If it's mercury, it will eat anything gold, so keep it away from rings and watches.... it's also poisonous to people.
