1897 large cent

I have an 1897 large cent that is smaller diameter than the others. I can't find any indications of tampering. could it be wrong planchet? my scales is "kaput', so no weight. It was compared, visually with another cent, and is obviously smaller.
thanks for looking,
Dick

Re: 2002 magnetic penny

The process I use for determining which are mangetic, (if i don't use the magnet), is to check for the "P". that tells me the core is steel. I believe that will work for any date.

I thought at first, that the pictures by mkb were either machine doubling, or hub doubling. After looking at them several times, and blowing up the images, i find that they are indeed, HUB-doubling, but It also appears to be two different fonts used! The second font appears to be a smaller size. The...

Re: Loonie- Fake or ?
