I have come across a 1890 Indian Head penny that appears to be brass.  Have any
of you heard of this?  I am not into collecting and have no knowledge of this
coin.  Any E-mail reply will be appriciated. Thank you.

It very probably has been cleaned with an acid-based cleaner. This will turn a
bronze (or brass)  coin several shades lighter.
