Looks like an "after mint" alteration.
Try it with two pennies and a nice block of wood and hammer.
Bet you can make some more of them.

How could a nice block of wood alter steel? And why?

Smack the two pennies together, use the wood to soften the hit from the hammer.
If you flip the UNITED STATES part onto the obv of the other coin, you can "mint" your own image.

I need help! Silver colored 1999 D penny, i Know kids coat pennies in zinc in chem class i have a billion, but this is not!!! the penny has a slight convex shape, It is not plated with anything the metal is solid no luster, almost a diagonal brush mark (like a brushed steel watch band) across ob and rev going in same direction. Rough-ish sides (not polished) very very sharp details. Un Plated? My iphone made it look darker but it is in fact a silvery color.

It is not magnetic the way zinc coated copper pennies are. Zinc is in fact slightly magnetic
