    That is the correct weight for a copper coated zinc cent.

    I see damage. Nothing to do with a clipped planchet. If it were an Incomplete clip it would appear on both sides of the Cent. The Reverse of your Cent looks mormal.

    That party will never happen. Just FYI.
    You have a normal large date copper plated zinc cent.

    2.5 grams is definitely zinc.
