The wheat is that kind of metal because in world war two they needed copper for ammunition so the mint switched the metal .

They were zinc coated steel in 1943.  In 1944-1946 cartridge case were used and they have somewhat of a different color, but still look like what we think of when we think of a cent.
I bet if you check your gray cent it will be a 1943.
The worth ?  Unless it is in pristine condition, on a good day you might be able to get 3 cents to a nickle for it.

3's and 5's are hard to tell apart on a lot of coins.  The Roosevelt Dimes are the worst for me to tell the difference.
