The 1943 Steel Lincoln Cent is a historic coin that was only minted for one year. Due to an urgent demand for copper during World War II, the cents of 1943 were struck in steel. This set includes an MS67 Steel Lincoln Cent from each of the mints that it was produced at: Philadelphia, San Francisco and Denver.
