    On my screen it looks more like copper color but silver patina can be any color.

    You could do a tiny scrape on the rim, it's already damaged.

    I'll give her a scrape when I get back to the house. Is this pain even worth the troubleCameraZOOM-20180507164815047.jpgCameraZOOM-20180507164843044.jpg

    Looks copper to me. If it were on a dime planchett the entire coin would be silver.

    Always worth the pain You never know what may be found... To me your coin looks copper... The areas that are off color appear to be from verdigris and other contaminants stuck to the coin!!!

    A jeweler can do a test for silver which is very similar to the test that is done for gold.
