I found this 1999 penny while going through a jug of change. I was told by a dealer it was done at the mint. The dealer said if done outside of the mint it would be discolored, bubbled, and cracks with inside metal coming out. He also said he had never heard of one making it out of the mint before. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    If you put a penny on a electric stove on the coil it will drip out zinc and leave just the shell you have pictured there. Or by other heat source

    Just don't make them like they used too!
