Pictures are needed to determine what you have!
so your coin is very close.
As C.N. said above, the surfaces look funky, so whatever
caused it might have taken of a touch of weight.
It's not an error coin, and the 2.9 grams is close enough to
the low tolerance that it is meaningless.
Post a picture.. Could be a Floating Roof Cent. Always post full clear pictures of both sides when creating a thread.
Especially since if it is only weighed to one decimal place it could actually weigh as much as 2.94 grams, just .03 grams out of tolerance.
wouldn't be worth getting graded.
Very often these coins were "reprocessed" and that takes the value down to a few pennies. So they may look shiny and new, but they are damaged post mint from replating. Yours has a different appearance, but the surfaces do not appear original.
Anyone thoughts or opinions regarding this ??
or require authentication, (to determine if it is actually gold, or if some rare variety or error is real) to be worth grading.
Most coins in my opinion don't really need to be graded.
The ones that do, this gives some protection from future circulation, and a paper trail of documentation which will help in the future.
Go to every store and coin club meeting where there may be a few graded coins you can view. and especially to shows where there will be hundreds to see. If possible hide the grade until you can see bother sides.........IT takes a Heck of looking before you really get a hang of it. Like a person only weighs a 120 lbs and wants to be 240 lb muscle man, it takes a lot of time and effort! Jim
