3 1943 Silver Pennies (S) (D)

5 posts in this topic

Welcome to the forum.

In 1943, Lincoln cents were made of zinc-coated steel. That is what gives them the appearance of silver. They are quite common, so are not really worth grading, unless they are in pristine condition, with no discernible marks. Since they were susceptible to corrosion and rust, many were stripped and re-plated. Your coins have that look, but you can tell by looking at the edge. Un-plated coins should have a seam on the edge.

Re-plated coins though they look nice, are not eligible for grading, and not worth more than a few cents.

And they have been circulated, so they are worth less than a dollar apiece.  Having them graded will cost you over $65, and they will still be worth less than a dollar apiece.
