1940 wheat penny

The only year they made the steel cent was 1943. Came back to edit. I was wrong about the tolerance. I was thinking wrong. I apoligize. Its not very much underweight.

It may be a slightly thinner planchet by looking at the weak strike. The minimum tolerance is 2.99 so it is a bit underweight.

Almost forgot, welcome to the forum.
