Hi Folks,

As always, thanks for your time. I have two 1943 steel pennies here. One rusted so bad can barely tell what it is (add to value?.. wouldn't think). The other shows signs of rusting but it's actually in decent shape I think. I know these are fairly common and the copper one is to watch for. But I have to say, these are sweet. Any real value (no, not looking to get rich. I enjoy it too much and probably keep what I have even if worth a million). Thanks again!

The rusted one is a spender in my book. If I ever find them rusted I turn them back into the wild. The other, only a few cents in that condition. There were so many of these made, very common, they really need to be MS to hold any value ( realistically high MS to hold real value).

Unless of course you're dealing with an error/variety then it varies.

Both are spenders in my opinion. Millions and millions of these were made, and while unique, as stated only those in very good condition are keepers.

May I suggest a good resource for you? Available from any book store or library is The Official Red Book, A Guide Book of United States Coins by R.S. Yeoman & Kenneth Bressett. It is published annually, but editions a few years old are still very useful. It will provide you with mintages and rough values and useful info to learn about various US coins. Anyone wanting to learn about US coins, THIS is the book you want to own.

They're both spenders to me as well.

The rusted one is a cull ,might not even be spendable if a young cashier can't make out what it is . The one that's in better condition is worth between 5 and 20 cents .
Gems in MS-67 are valued at around $90 or more .

MS-67 is worth a lot more than that:

Of course none of your coins are a MS example though.
