    Anyone found a 1943 steel penny?

    Anyone found a 1943 steel penny? I imagine they are hard to find because they are ferrous...I know i would probably miss one becuase i reject small iron/steel objects.

    Re: Anyone found a 1943 steel penny?

    I'v found 2 in Approxamately 40 years.

    Both were found because there was another Coin with them.

    Both were just Penny size Rusted Discs, when I found them,

    And IF by Chance I would have found one alone, I'd Throw it away as a Piece of Rusted metal.

    In my Belief, The ground would have to have been Dry from the time the penny was Lost, In order to find one Un Rusted.
    ? Or in an Air tight Container.

    Re: Anyone found a 1943 steel penny?

    i went to my aunts for thanksgiving, and started talking coins with my 8 yr old cousin....so he went and grabbed his coin box...or should i say turtle... he keeps them in a big brass turtle...he had one silver quarter a 64, 4 or 5 buffalo nickles with no date and yes he had a rusty 43 penny...i think next time i am out that way we are going to do some trading....maybe i should just kick his butt and take it...he is kinda rotten anyways.
    good luck

    I'm glad someone asked this question because I had wondered the same thing.

    Re: Anyone found a 1943 steel penny?

    As I said, The ONLY Way I Know it's a penny is, It was in a Hole With Another Coin.

    In Fact I think Another Penny & a Merc, IF I remember Right.

    And It's TOO Close to a Penny Not to be a 1943 Steel

    NOTE :

    Just Checked Record for that day.

    Old Coin Finds The same day

    ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 11 Wheats 1935 to 1958

    ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? 1 Mercury dime 1945-S

    ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?1 Roosevelt Dime 1948

    So there Is a Good Chance My Memory Isn't TOO far off If it is at all?

    Re: Anyone found a 1943 steel penny?

    Your right, exact size...steel punch-outs from construction sites are larger than a penny I have found a coin like rusty object, but it was a little smaller than a dime, still have it, no clue what it is...think its just a piece of cut sheet metal from along time ago.

    Re: Anyone found a 1943 steel penny?

    I think I have found about 3 in about 33 years of looking. Mine weren't quite as bad as Jeff's. You could see Lincoln, but barely make out the date. Mine were all found with a TR detector with no discrimination. I think I threw them in with my junk and damaged coins. I don't think you could even sell them for the steel in them.
