I purchased this at a recent online estate sale and everything seemed normal until I handled this coin and it appeared feather light.

Weight: .099g. What goes ? I know there were experimental planchets for the war made of glass, plastic and rubber but who really knows what this is.

Looks like it was plated. So if it happened several times it would add weight to the coin. The normal weight is 2.7 grams for a steel cent. SO if it sticks to a magnet, it is a normal reprocessed coin. Are sure you are weighing in grams? Put a copper cent (3.11)and then a zinc cent (2.5g) to see if it is not in the grams mode?

Agree with @coop. .099 oz is 2.8 grams, which is close to the correct weight. You might have your scale set to the wrong measurement. It has that overly shiny look of a plated coin, which would account for the small difference in that case.

Normal plated steel cent with rust. Edge views verify the weight is normal (if truly .99 grams it would be razor thin). Worth only a few cents.
