No my scale is in a box right now because we are moving. Once I get settled I'll weigh it and let you know if it's light.
I'm curious to why you would ask that question?
Even a greaser would weigh as much as a normal struck copper plated zinc cent.
I was thinking maybe it was because he thinks it may be a weak strike but even if it was a weak strike it should weigh the same. That said it doesn't hurt to weigh any coin ,my brain hasn't been on point lately because of being over worked and moving.
If it's not a filled die, then another possibility would be a thin planchet. I don't think this is a thin planchet, but weighing the coin is a quick and easy way to eliminate this possibility.
