Off-metal nickel on cent planchet. The coin has the design of a nickel, but is struck on a copper Lincoln cent planchet. It weighs 3.0 grams, which is within tolerances for a cent. 1977 is a somewhat scarcer date for nickels on cents, although the premium is virtually no more than a common date nickel on cent, making this coin a good deal.
