To CCF , try the magnet test , copper won't stick to a magnet but a copper plated steel cent would . Don't get your hopes up ,a genuine 1943 copper cent is extremely rare .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

A simple question.
How much are they asking for it.
China makes these by the thousands and sells them for a couple
of dollars each.
A genuine copper 1943 can sell for upwards of $100,000.

For $20,000 I would want it authenticated.
Are you willing to take a chance on a raw coin?
Right now you are only taking the sellers word.

Someone wants to sell you a $200,000 dollar coin for $20,000? That should raise a red flag

Statistically, there's virtually no chance it's real. Also, the tail of the 3 on this coin is more vertical than on a genuine 1943 cent.

My advice: do not buy. This offer is highly suspicious - too good to be true.

Here's the coin in question compared to a PCGS authenticated bronze cent. The 3 is clearly a different shape.

If they really want to sell the coin, they need to have it sent off to a reputable grading company, whether that be PCGS or NGC or whoever else there may be.
Lincoln cents - 2 holes; 1909SVDB/1914D / Jefferson nickels - Done / Roosevelt dimes - Done / Washington quarters - 19 holes /
Kennedy halves - 10 Holes / Buffalo nickels - 10 Holes
Work in progress - Barber/SLQ combined / Indian Head cents / 7070

As already said, simply ask the seller to have it authenticated by a TPGS like NGC or PCGS. If he will not, simply pass on that one.
