This is the last, just went through 3 rolls of Steele's. Is this considered strike doubling and or die erosion doubling. I couldn't help showing this.

I apologize everyone, I'll catch up on responses. I had to step away for a bit to travel to California to pick up the rest of my mom's stuff out of storage . And bring back to Nebraska. Kinda went at a bad time, I had to go through Stockton while protesting is going on. There were burning buildings all kind of stuff going on. Glad to be home and safe. I ended up with a few more coin that I will be posting. Got a couple of interesting one's.

What has your research told you on this?

So I looked back on a 1943 Steelie I posted while back, and looked at a few on line. Pretty much environmental damage.

Having gone through Stockton, you probably deserved better.

"Are 1943 steel pennies uncirculated worth much?"

Only if higher grades. A MS65 might be worth about $20.00 and a MS67 would go for around $100.00.

In 1943 “Steelies”, beginners need to beware of reprocessed (redone zinc plating) coins. They are pretty to the untrained eye, but they are also pretty worthless. Many people have never seen a truly high grade 1943.

Here is a 1943 Steel Cent in MS-66.The zinc coat finish is not extremely bright, only rather lusterous.
