The 1943 Penny

Posted by gablescoin on

The 1943 and 1944 Lincoln pennies have their own errors and they have value. Both of them were struck by accident, the 1943 pennies were supposed to be minted as the steel pennies or war pennies.

Coin analysts speculate that they were struck by accident when copper-alloy 1-cent blanks remained in the press hopper when production began on the new steel pennies.

Make sure the coin you have or are buying is not a steel coated copper penny rip off.

The 1944 steel penny was made also by mistake, there are only 2 known and they are on museums. The regular 1944 pennies are made of copper and they don’t have any collector’s value.
