    I believe these wew made with iron,,,not copper. The copper pennies from 1943 are scarce indeed. Take a magnet to it and check it out. Very nice find indeed

    Happy New Year

    Steel penny due to wartime copper use.

    I didn't know any traditional ones were made that year--how many are known to exist that are copper?

    Scott,
    Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. I think they have found about 40 or so copper pennies from 1943. There are rare. Here is a good link from the us mint about the 1943 penny.
