Headed to strong hands in The Backcountry ... Thanks RW !
A lot of people talk about 1943 pennies and that they may have a silver one, and while they may have the right color penny, most of those are zinc plated steel. The famed error for the 1943 penny is the copper issue, as the US Mint switched metals from copper to steel in order to conserve the copper for the war effort. While the mint tested a variety of metals and alloys in the process of settling on steel, they certainly didn’t mean for this one to be released into the wild.
