So my husband acquired a few coins from his father. This is one of them. It's not a 42/43 variety and it doesn't fit the criteria for a henning because it has a P. A magnet will hold the coin on all sides. Not as strong as a steel penny but it's not a weak hold, either. The weight is 5.3 grams and it is very shiny. Any ideas?#8206;
It looks as if its been plated - which would explain it being magnetic. There were many, many sets put together in a plastic holder with cardboard insert entitled "Obsolete Coins of Yesteryear." You can google to see pictures of the sets. My local bank, when I was a kid, was giving these out and all of the coins in it were plated to make them look shiny.
