(10) 1943 Circulated Steel Cents
Issued for 1 year during WWII
These 10 circulated Steel Wheat Cents were issued in 1943 only. During the height of the second World War, the USA needed a great deal of copper for the war effort, so steel was used to replace copper in 1943 cents. These rust-free coins are great examples of a historic period in America.
