    Your coin may have originally been struck on a thin/light planchet, And then throw in years of wear you get a "light" coin.
    For a wrong planchet error you would have to prove there where other coin planchet in the mint at the time your coin was made.

    Take a picture of the edge. It will be thin thin if it is struck on a light planchet. Also, I kinda want to see.:)

    Thin planchet originally. Add in all those years of wear and you will get what you got. A lightweight coin.

    Honestly, I don't think that is thin enough to only weigh 0.38 grams. It is supposed to weigh 3.11. Maybe your scale is off?

    The OP said it weighs .32 grams less, not weighs .38 grams. You must have had a long tiring day. :)
