⁷I also have a 1953 magnetic penny it weighs 3.35 grams it looks exactly like every other 1953 penny I have same color same size just different weight and it's quite magnetic not a weak attraction it's farily strong attraction. I just found it 5 days ago while doing the same thing you were doing running a magnet thru my wheats. I'm so curios Icant find anything about it. I couldn't believe it when I found your post.

I found a 1953 wheat cent that flips onto a magnet and weighs 3.1g. I took it to a local numismatic reputable shop in my town and he took a few pictures and asked if he could put it on a few coin forums to see what others numismatics thought are. I said sure. He has confirmed it’s not been fooled with and is authentic without a doubt. Here are a few pictures of my coin. My question is should I grade it and how valuable would it be if confirmed my grader to be legit struck on wrong planchette magnetic 1953  wheat penny
