Description & Analysis

Judd-2054, Pollock-2074, High R.7.

The obverse resembles the KM-198 Colombia two centavos. The reverse revives the wreath motif from the Baker-155 Washington medalet and adds the legend UNITED/STATES/MINT. Struck in zinc-coated steel with a plain edge. This alloy was, of course, the "winner" of the various compositions tested in 1942 for the issued 1943-dated cents. Countless tons of copper were thus saved for the war effort, but consumer confusion between silver dimes and "white" cents led to a 1944 return of the predominantly copper alloy.
