Worth atleast a cent.. probably not much more. Looks poorly re-plated.

I've only been collecting for a couple years (2017). Favorite Coin's are Standing Liberty quarters, Working on my type set: "knowledge is power" -Thomas Jefferson | Coffee, Corvettes, Coins & the CCF what could be better?

Agree, the coin has been plated--and apparently not very well. Value could range from 1 to 50 cents. Perhaps there's a collector out there who loves plated coins.

To CCF , Not understanding your poll but your coin is only worth 1 in it's present condition . Also it's reprocessed ( plated ) .

Nearly all pennies from 1943 are supposed to be steel cents. However: A small number of copper planchets were left over from 1942 and were used in 1943 during the transition to steel planchets. These are the super valuable ones, otherwise the Mint struck over a billion of these steel cents that came to be known as "steelies", which included 684,628,670 from the Philadelphia Mint, 217,660,000 from the Denver Mint and 191,550,000 from the San Francisco Mint. Condition plays a large part as with all coins, with mainly the top condition having a decent to high value (after paying the grading fees and placed into a graded holder) and the general circulated ones not much value. There are also many third parties replating these old cents and that looks to be what you have as others have stated, which may be cool to have but does not increase its value beyond 1c unless some collector feels like paying more because they like plated cents look vs an original but dealers will not pay a premium.

Shiny does not mean valuable in the coin hobby. You coin is a typical example of this. Someone took a normal 1943 cent (possibly even in bad shape as might be evidenced by the mottled surface) and plated it to make it shiny.

This coin is considered a damaged coin that therefore is likely devalued to a penny in value. Sorry :(
