Hi there I'm new here and I was just wondering how much 1937-S pennies are supposed to weigh? I been going through a couple coffee cans of coins and came across a coin of the aforementioned date and it weighs 2.5g....

Sorry if this is an ignorant sounding question.

Thanks

Original weight 3.11 g. Wear and other factors will remove some of this. Pics please!

I understand that over time, coins can wear down and lose weight, but this one appears to have some gunk on it already... And it's still weighing in half a gram light?

I'm strictly a beginner at this, but I've looked at at least 100k pennies since I started this side hobby. I've never come across a penny this old that tips the scales like As if it were a penny made half a century later.

Thanks for your feedback. I'm Eyeballs deep in pennies and I'm all over the place with the info I'm trying to scroll through in my brain with every Lincoln I flip over and look at

Looks like it's been dipped in acid or spent time in some type of corrosive substance. Fairly common damage to see. Not an error.

It is always best to post a full coin photo of the obverse, and a full coin photo of the reverse, as well as one or two close ups if needed. Going by these pics, it looks like an environmental damaged coin, like a metal detector find.
