    You could have a thick planchet but in order to determine that we need to see it on a scale with our own eyes.

    Pennies turn all sorts of colors while in circulation. This coin has been floating around for almost 37 years.

    Welcome to Coin Talk. :) How much does your coin weigh? The normal weight for copper plated zinc cents is 2.5 grams, +/- .10g (2.4-2.6 grams). Prior to 1982 the normal weight for the Lincoln Cent is 3.11 grams, +/- .13g.

    Thank you for replying, this afternoon I’ll get a dead on weight with a real good scale just to make sure, I have about $40 worth of pennies There isn’t any other pennies out of the 40 that even come close to this color I’m gonna send you a picture with it next to a different penny, Thanks again Greg
