  1. obverse 20191021_102938.thumb.jpg.ab9893dc33f03e02883aff6067313bca.jpgThis coin isnt magnetic.  I've had it for almost a year. I just looked at it under magnification and it looks to be struck on another coin. I found it roll hunting.
  2. I have better  pics and a video on YouTube that I posted an hour ago.
  3. Is this possibly what it looks like?

You didn't specify the date of your cent, and it's not readable from the photos. Assuming that it's dated 1982 or later, it appears to have suffered environmental damage that stripped off the brass plating and also etched the zinc base. Zinc is not responsive to a magnet, so that's normal for the coin.
