### What is the weight of a penny on a neutron star?

It would have no weight as the massive gravity would have
stripped the penny apart, atom by atom. So it would no longer be a
penny.
Also - there are many kinds of penny all with different
weights.
If it was possible - and it's not - the weight of the penny
would be about 140,000,000,000 times that on Earth.

### Were their ever a 1976 d aluminum penny made as I have seen one with my own two eyes?

Most likely you have seen a fake. Someone probably electroplated
an ordinary 1976 d penny with silver or aluminum. Check its weight.
Aluminum is light, less than 1/3rd the density of copper. Compare
its weight with a copper penny. If the "aluminum" penny is just as
heavy, then it is a electroplated penny. If it is light, then it is
a complete fake.
