Description & Analysis

Unlike the Philadelphia Mint, which was coining 2-francs pieces for Belgium utilizing leftover steel cent blanks, the San Francisco Mint had no excuse for striking steel cents in 1944. Thus, it was purely the result of stray steel planchets finding their way into the press.

This mint error is an extreme rarity and is presently believed to be unique. There is only the most remote chance that another example may turn up within the hoards of circulated steel cents in the hands of collectors and dealers.
