I don't think the U.S. Was in the war that year though.

@kumarp13 I was fortunate to find a 1943 Steel Penny a few years back and another at a flea market for a good price. I need to add my coins in here, but I don't think it'll happen.

1958 was the last year of the wheat penny.1959-2008 was Lincoln memorial.2009 was Lincoln commemorative.2010-present Lincoln shield

S

The coin is called a "wheat penny" because of the 2 things of wheat on the back

S

You're lucky lol I wouldn't have noticed it tbh

S

@marlowj No, sorry, but I do see a number of World War 2 coin sets online if you're interested

S

@andbooks @boynamedsue Haha, yeah, the back makes them look like arcade tokens to me too. I'm not sure when the Mint changed the back to the current design

S

@merlin Yeah, they're really cool! What I'd love to find is a 1943 steel penny...

S

@kp_ayge So I'm going to be totally honest...I don't know, lol. I was going to pay for something and pulled change from my wallet and found this! Luckily, I noticed what it was before handing it over

S

Is this for sale?
