Lincoln 1943 Steel PennyAs an emergency measure during WW II, all 1943 U.S. cents were struck in zinc-finished steel instead of copper. The copper saved from this one-year issue was used in the war effort, mainly in the manufacture of shell casings.

Most of the so called"steelies" were minted in Philadelphia, but some steel pennies were struck in Denver, and San Francisco. Ironically, many of the unused copper casings replaced by the steel cents were later melted down and used in the creation of regular copper/bronze cents during the late Forties.

Today, there is increasing talk, and a growing political and fiscal move toward abolishing cents altogether, and we may soon be operating in an economy that uses the nickel as the coin of lowest denomination. If that time comes, pennies of all earlier years will become more collectible, and the value of the unique, 1943 steel cents should increase accordingly.

"Steel Cents" can guarantee that these unique zinc-coated steel penny sets will be appreciated as special gifts for those who may remember these striking cents in use, and for those who have never seen, or even heard of them.

Steel Cents were often mistaken as "silver" cents when first introduced. A thin layer of zinc was applied to the pennies to maintain the finish, but handling soon caused circulated steel cents to turn dark gray to black.

All the 1943 steel cents sets include examples from each of the three mints. Each coin is guaranteed to be in EF/AU, that is, "Extremely fine" to "About Uncirculated" A few of the D minted cents have had the zinc finish reapplied to restore luster, but the designs and details of the coins have in no way been enhanced or altered.

On any steel cent you may find minute contact marks that are typical of AU coins, and even of low-end "Uncirculated" steel pennies due to original transport in canvas bags from bank to bank, but evey steel war penny has a brilliant and lustrous finish that will remain protected in either of the graphically rich presentation cases.

The price for either steel cents set is $12.95, plus $2.00 shipping. Whether you order one set, or ten , the shipping price remains fixed at $2.00 via USPS mail.

SteelCents.Com includes a seven-day, no questions asked return policy
. If you do not choose to keep your set, please return it, with coins intact, and your purchase price will be refunded without question. Shipping charges will not be refunded.
