Re: A scenario for making a slotted rim cent confused smiley

September 20, 2017 12:20PM
Hello Sodbuster-----Yes, puzzling indeed it is.----I wish you were here that you could take a look at these coins.----There may be a simple explanation for them but for the life of me I don't know what it is.-----They are the same thickness of the regular zincs but being larger diameter---they should weigh more (which they don't).-----It crossed my mind that there is a inner core of a different composition & "sandwiched" outers---but that can't be---can it?-------And why the wide span of dates on them? ('92D, 94D, 82P & '89P?------Incidentally, the 82P (Philadelphia mint) is the large date variety.----That of course has no bearing on what we are talking about as to size & weight but I just thought I would mention it.-------The bottom line "puzzler"---why are they larger in the first place & why do they have that slotted rim---also---why don't they weigh more than a "normal" zinc?-----As I said, I'll show them to anybody but I don't have the means to post pictures.--------God Bless.------------Del
