    1942 "Experimental Cent" Related Blank Planchet, Unlisted in Judd and Pollock, R.5-7 (?), PR60 Uncertified. 10.30 grains. Each side has an upset rim and six concentric circles around the outer margin, otherwise blank. Struck in general purpose phenolic resin with a plain edge. Since copper was a strategic war material during the Second World War, replacement material was sought by the government that would simulate copper as closely as possible. Materials as diverse as plastic and glass were used in this testing process. This planchet was produced by an unnamed private firm in 1942. The surfaces are a deep, even brown color and the fields are bright and reflective.
