1955 d wheat penny off metal

1 post in this topic

I found this coin at the local antique store. At first i thought it looked odd for a 1943 steel wheat penny. Then i noticed the date was 1955. It does not stick to a magnet.  I weighed the  coin and it only weighs 3.00 grams. In my opinion it appears to be made of mostly tin and zinc with very little copper.  I paid $3 for it just because of the slight possibility that it would be very rare. Any thoughts?
