  • Rare 1943 copper penny could bring $200,000 Rare 1943 copper penny could bring $200,000
    Jan. 9, 2019 - In 1942 and 1943, copper was needed to make war materials. World War II was raging so millions of pennies, called steelies, were made by coating steel with zinc.

It was in his change after purchasing lunch at his high school cafeteria. That coin will go up for auction Thursday by Heritage Auctions. It could fetch more than $200,000.
