I wanted to share with you all my steel pennies but took me all morning..into afternoon to get them to upload because of there sizing, something wasn't working and I cant spend anymore time on it..
I have 5 1943 steel pennies that were in my dads pennies collection books...I want to sell them. I did recerch and they r very rare..I have 4 books full of pennies from 1909 to 2007 ...please will someone tell me what to do. Should I or can I even get them restored then graded? Or do buyers of the coin do this? How do I even find a buyer for these coins.
Thanks

They are not very rare. They made over a billion of them.

.... to the Community!

1943 STEEL cents are not rare. 1943 COPPER cents are rare.

Use a magnet to determine which ones you have. Steel will be attracted to a magnet; copper will not be attracted to a magnet.

Circulated 1943 steel cents are currently being purchased by the wholesalers in the range of 10 to 15 cents each. Rusty ones will bring less.

Your Dad's coins are most likely worth more in sentimental value than numismatic value.

Good luck!

Agree, unlikely your coins are worth much, but pics will confirm.

I have a box full in 2x2s to give away to kids at shows. We gave away about 300 of them at the last show we were able to go to.

As others have said, the 1943 pennies are not particularly rare.

If you have 4 books of coins starting in 1909, the following are the rare ones:

1909-S VDB
1909-S
1914-D
1931-S

If you have any of these, look them up on eBay to get an idea of what they could be sold for.

We're here to help. The posting pics part is the hardest part...You already have the coins

Don't get frustrated...when you have some time...try and upload your pics again...and especially the key date cents the post before this advised.

Looking forward to seeing your Dads cool collection!

Without seeing them, we can't help you much. If they are very shinny they may be replated (which would hurt their value). The only way they have much of a value is if they are uncirculated really good strikes, otherwise. as other here have said, they really don't have much of a value at all. Please try uploading your photos again, we'd really like to see them.
