As Johm1 stated all wheat cents except 1943 are bronze. If your scale is correct, then your 1957 D is a little underweight.

Steel 1943 Wheat cent weigh 2.7 grams and stick to a magnet. Maybe the 1943 has whatever on it that turns cents blackish (tannins, asphalt, etc.). So the 1943 D is a normal steel cent and weighs correct amount. There are no steel 1957 cents and should be 3 grams. As noted yours is a bit underweight.

Don't forget to factor in mint tolerance.
