The right wheat seems to have either a gas bubble or excessive material can someone give me some facts.. also the S looks like an 8 ? All info is appreciated.

You coin is probably the weight it should be. So there is no extra material on it. I see finger prints and a possible die chip, but chips, mint marks, cracks, breaks and cuds do not add weight to a coin. It goes in before 3.11 grams and comes out the same weight. The metal just re-arranges on the coin. So the weight remains the same and no extra material is added.

Looks like a die chip on the wheat ear. Gas bubbles are only on the copper-plated zinc cents.

I think I can see a Die Crack on the right wheat stalk.

The weight is a tad bit high, but not enough to be out of U.S. Mint tolerances.
