You may hear that there are no sliver colored lincoln cents other than those minted in 1943. That is probably wrong. Since 1982 I think) cents have been struck on copper plated planchets. From time to time unplated coins have been released to circulation. I earlier examples of silver colored pennies have escaped to circulation after having been struck on the wrong planchet.

I found a 1983 unplated cent on ebay for 125.00.

I found a 1955 Lincoln Cent--Struck on Venezuela 25c Planchet that sold in a Heritage Auction for 1610.00.
