Hi, I know that 1943 Silver pennies are not rare however I have not been able to find something similar to this coin coin characteristic.

Any help will be appreciated.

Grease filled die. I have one very similar to yours. Fairly common.

The shallowness of the "4" digit is due to a slight grease-filled die. Not uncommon.

Thank you for the input on the Number 4, is this the same reason why the Mint Mark is a Square not a letter?

Yes the mint mark is also filled. Looks like Should have been an S by the faint outline that still appears.

Just a grease filled die. It also worth mentioning that it is a steel cent and it is not made of silver.

Grease filled die. Looks like yours is a "S" mintmark.

More precisely, zinc plated steel. Color is good, looks original and not replated.

The plating was applied to the steel BEFORE the blanks were cut out, so the edge should show three layers, where a tiny bit of the plating is pushed onto the edges top/bottom and then where the raw steel is exposed. Like a White Castle slider...
