They are roughly worth between 12 and 15 cents in a normal condition. On the other hand, if the coin that you possess happens to be uncirculated, then it could fetch anything up to 50 cents.

There are many reasons why one of these 1943 silver colored penny could be worth a lot. They were produced as a reaction to the wartime effort and, unlike many coins, it is predominately made of steel with a zinc coating.

There are however, some that were produced in 1943 that have been made from copper instead of the usual steel, these are considered rare as they were made in a time when copper was so scarce. If you think you have one of these, you can do a simple test to find out if you are in fact the proud owner of a copper penny.

They are in fact extremely rare and prized possessions. So if you think you have a copper plated steel penny from the 1943 period then all you need to do is test the coin with a small magnet. If the magnet sticks, it is probably made of steel and has been plated in copper; if it does not stick then it is highly likely it is the real article.

If you do have in your cupboards a genuine copper plated steel penny, then again it is probably only worth around 15 cents. Such instances though should merit a trip to a recognized coin seller or specialist coin shop where you can to get your coins valued by a qualified person who specializes in these rare collections. As they are experts, they can probably tell straightaway whether the 1943 steel penny you have is genuine or not.

Unfortunately your coin is probably only worth around 50 cents (as it is steel). If it was copper, it's a totally different story. A 1943 S (minted in San Francisco) in years gone by has gone for around $60,000 at auction. There are also P mint coins (Philadelphia) that have historically gone for $10,000 and more recently have fetched anywhere up to $73,000. Again, they are copper coins however. It's also probably good to note that there are a lot of counterfeits of this coin around.
