1943-S Bronze/Copper Lincoln Wheat Cent Penny
One of the rarest and most intriguing US coins is the 1943-S Bronze/Copper Lincoln Wheat Cent. Nearly all pennies from 1943 are supposed to be steel cents. However: A small number of copper planchets were left over from 1942 and were used in 1943 during the transition to steel planchets. The 1943 copper cent was produced at all three mints. However - Only 5 San Francisco-minted 1943-S Copper Cents are known to exist - making it rarer than the Philadelphia variety but more common than the unique Denver variety. Most experts believe that there are still a few yet to be discovered!
