  I've heard of these pennies before and as you can see from the linked story if you are lucky enough to find one, you'll be swimming in cash! In 1943 the U.S. minted pennies with steel because copper was needed for the war effort.  A few copper pennies were accidentally minted. Key word: few!Time to go through your old pennies!
