History of the Lincoln Steel Wheat Penny
The original Wheat Penny was designed by Victor D. Brenner and issued by the US Mint from 1909 to 1956, and it has since become a classic 21st century American coin. The obverse was commemorative of the 100th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth.
These pennies were made mostly of copper. However, copper shortages during WWII due to ammunition production led to the mint striking Wheat Cents from steel-coated zinc. These coins were commonly mistaken for dimes, which is why they were only made with this composition for one year.
Due to their numismatic appeal, Wheat Pennies are often valued at several times their face value, or higher for coins in excellent condition. This fact—along with their metal content—makes them a good investment, particularly for investors who enjoy collecting “junk” coins.
Your 2,500 Steel Wheat Pennies will ship in a canvas bag that weighs over 17 pounds. They are each dated 1943, though we cannot guarantee any particular condition.
