So there's a Tik Tok video going around that the guy claims one of his subs found a copper 1943-P penny that exhibits what he calls a "doubled die error", weighs 3.1 grams and that it's easily worth upwards of $1 million dollars. I'll link the video but here are some screen shots from the video.

So, thoughts?

Horrible photos but looks like a bad garage job fake to me.

Indeed!

The pic of the coin on the scale is suspect. Can't really see any of the doubling on it, so is it different coin or just poor quality/not close enough to see?

The weight seems right but with the amount if wear seems off, I wouldn't be surprised if it was just a poorly done soft die counterfeit rather then a cast coin. The photo quality is hard to judge for me, the highly lit photos look like a fake coin, the one in the scale the colour looks a bit more natural for an old Wheat cent.

A fake 100% just by looking at it. Any experienced collector can tell it's not a doubled die and it being a 1943 copper too that would be insanely rare.
The people on tiktok have no clue what they are talking about it and agreeing too I've seen everybody agreeing it's a nice find they just agreeing with the masses pretty sad

Y'all should watch some of that guys other videos. Misleading the public doesn't even begin to describe it.
By watching them you are led to believe that you can easily go out and find any of a number of coins that would make you rich.
