I remember a '43 copper selling for 8 grand in the late 70's.That was real money then......

If you were to use the so-called 'rule of seven', which states that an investment should double in value every seven years (don't ask me),these coins should be worth a half million by now......

There were two slightly different cent alloys used in 1942. Adopting the "stuck in tote bin" theory, the options are: 95% copper 3% zinc and 2% tin, or 95% copper 4.9% zinc and 0.1% ("a trace") of tin. However, some 1942 cents show no tin, but I do not know the level of care taken in making the measurements.
