1944 D Steel Lincoln Wheat Cent Penny
One of the rarest and most intriguing US coins is the 1944-D Steel Lincoln Wheat Cent. Nearly all pennies from 1944 are supposed have transitioned from steel back to copper/bronze. However - similar to the rare 1943 copper cent - a small number of zinc-coated steel planchets were left over from 1943 and were used in 1944 during the transition to steel planchets. The 1944 steel cent was produced at all three mints. However - Only 7 Denver-minted 1944-D Steel Cents are known to exist - making it rarer than the Philadelphia variety but more common than the San Francisco variety. Most experts believe that there are still a few yet to be discovered! (Source of example image is courtesy of Heritage Auction Galleries)
