Is this a normal 1944-S Wheat Penny?

I found this not long ago and I can't quite figure out what is wrong with it. I'm very new to coins and their errors so any helpful advice or info would be greatly appreciated!
It weighs between 3.23 and 3.24 grams and has an interesting tone. Also, I wondered if there was doubling on the obverse, particularly IGWT..

    @MiBellita....Welcome aboard.... It looks as if you have a well circulated '44S cent... I see no doubled die and the tarnish is normal...Cheers, RickO
