    Unanswered: Experts...... I need your help with this 1941 P

    I have no idea what this is. It actually looks like paper sack material. Viewed with a 10 x microscope it looks more golden yellow, like brass, instead of reddish copper color. So I don't know that's why I need your help. Thank you20180509_140500-0.jpg20180509_140533-0.jpg20180509_140725-0.jpg20180509_140738-0.jpg

    Cool... Looks to be a woodie... This is from our Glossary -

    Improper Alloy Mixture: During the copper alloy planchet era (pre-1982), there were instances of errors in the alloy mixture which resulted in planchets which show different ribbons of color in them, often resembling wood grain. These cents are often referred to as “wood-grain cents,” or “woodies.”

    Nice looking woody with lots of contrast between the lighter and darker colors.
