Description & Analysis

The mint error companion to the bronze cents of 1943, this edition is not as rare, but it is still very highly sought.

The Philadelphia Mint may be forgiven for this error, as in 1944 it was also coining 2-franc pieces for Belgium which, in a cost saving measure, were produced on planchets leftover from the 1943 steel cent program. Thus, there were ample opportunities for the steel planchets to go astray and get coined with cent dies.
