It is Magnetic. That's how I found it in a box of bank rolls. What's the value today? The most I could find it at was $20. Fun Find.

Only worth something if in really really good shape or if it's an error coin.

As mentioned, it depends highly upon condition. Since yours is in poor shape overall, I wouldn't expect much over face value. However, they are an interesting piece of history and don't pop up that often in circulation, so it's a nice find even if there's no real value.
