The back is different  
I got this penny and the unusual thing about it it's the it's a little more bigger than others and it's different color also it's miss printed

Answer
Hello,

This is an interesting find.

First we would need to determine the weight so we can see if it could be an unplated zinc cent. The larger size makes me think its a replica made to look like an aluminum cent.

If you can let me know the weight I can investigate further.

Regards,
