1943 U.S. Wartime Steel Cents were struck in steel due to wartime shortages of copper. The Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Denver Mints produced the 1943 Lincoln Steel War Cents. Its unique composition of steel coated with zinc, instead of the previously 95%-copper-based bronze was unique. The 1943 steel cent continues to be sought after and is an important and valued part of collections.
