Any photos? Steel is an alloy all by itself. Do you mean iron? Are you sure it's not plated? How did you analyze it?

would love to post some pictures.
I only assume it is steel. Pictures will explain a lot.
coin is magnetic.
will try and post pictures after I find the best way to do this.

Never seen that before.
Looks like the nickel and copper layers have been peeled off somehow
exposing the steel core, thus the lighter weight.
The rims look higher so it is possible that it was an early stage dryer coin
which would account for the smaller diameter.
This is just an observation on my part so perhaps someone may have
another explanation.
Pretty sure it's PMD though as I can't see how it could possibly be done
at the mint.
