While going through my grandpas coin collection with him we found a 1961 penny that is silver in color and really have no clue as to what it could be. It's not magnetic like the 43' steel cents and has a completely different look than any steel cents that I have from 43'. And as far as i know that was the only year that lincoln cents were a different color than copper. Any information would be great!!!

Hey, bud, the coin is most likely plated. However, what does the coin weigh?
