Think my 1943 s Lincoln penny may be a steel coin.
It weighs appro 2.7 g, sticks to the magnet, and think it is authentic. I have not mastered the uploading an image.....yet. In the meantime, I would appreciate any comments.

Welcome to the CCF

All 1943 CENTS are made from zinc coated steel with an average weight of 2.7 g.
If you can find a 1943 in copper, then you will have a winner.

Sounds like a normal coin. They were all supposed to see steel and 2.7 grams that year. If they are shiny that is a bad thing. The surface has been altered.

This is what a normal coin in original condition would look like. MS-67

Not like this one:

The reprocessing this coin cut the value a lot.
