Appears to be a 1927 Wheat penny. Looks like it's copper Cortes sink penny. Obverse is copper color and reverse is zink color. The struck on both sides seam very week as you can only see a gain 27 on the date. The coin weighs 2.9g..

Just a Wheat cent now. The damage is too sever to be a collectable.

@gnaylor5, first welcome to CCF. Second, I agree with @coop that this coin is severely damaged: in addition to heavy circulation wear, there are large gouges on Abe's shoulder and cheek. The odd color on the reverse is most likely from an electroplating experiment.

Appears to have been plated at one time. No value other than face value.

I agree with Spence. You can see the silver colour plating starting to flake off.

Those darn 50's magic books and kids chemistry sets that showed / gave people the chemicals to plate pennies.
