Aluminum Penny.
This is an incredibly rare coin: An experimental penny made to see if aluminum would be a good substitute for copper, when the price of copper rose to more than a penny per penny. Only a very small number were every minted, because they decided to go with copper-clad zinc instead. In fact, the coin is so rare that I couldn't possibly actually have one: This is a copy made by a company that specializes in making (legitimate) copies of extremely rare coins. Note that it's clearly stamped "COPY" so there is no confusion.
