I have a 1946 Lincoln Wheat penny that looks as though it has a profile of Lincoln on the back same spot as the front. But can't find anything online.

@wholler, first welcome to CCF. Second, that is called Progressive Indirect Design Transfer. Here is a link to more info:

Also known simply as "ghosting" - yours is a nice example.

Is it worth anything? I've got a good sized handful of Wheat pennies. None of which are 1943 steel. Some seem to have errors. How do I go about finding the value?

No premium the die is aging and breaking down as it ages. It is most often noted on Wheat cents, but it occurs on other coins also. You might save it for educational purposes to new collectors you come in contact with. A sharing of what you have found to a new collector. (You will have something for show and tell. LOL)
