The cent is in decent shape although the gunk on the front is distracting. Carefully removing it is possible but it is not be worth the effort.
Here's the stats...Type/Country: 1 Cent / Canada
Metal: 98% Copper, 0.5% Tin, and 1.5% Zinc
Value: $0.02 in F
Do you have a cent from Canada and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
