I have more than a few wheat cents and have never seen one like this. First, the coin front and back has a gold glitter look to it. Secondly, I weighed it and it weighs 2.74g. My worst worn Wheat cent comes in considerably higher weight. Thoughts? As always, thanks for your time

It appears that environmental etching or acid has amplified the linear structure of the coin metal which was created when it was rolled to thickness thus the lost weight.
