Good morning again. I did my best to display a picture these are the coins from my earlier posts of the wheat cents. Its extremely hard to show luster in pictures. I did my best. And if Theres any input I can receive its well appreciated. Did they ever make bronze Wheat cent
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.
