Best Answer

Real 1943 Lincoln cents struck on bronze planchets, have sold from $40,000.00 to more than One Million dollars. More fake coins exist than authentic coins. If you think you have one you should take it to a reputable coin dealer to have it authenticated.

How much is a 1943 penny with no mint worth?

If it's a 1943 steel penny, it isn't worth much...a few cents if it's circulated, or a little more, maybe 50 cents if it's uncirculated. If it's a 1943 copper penny take it to a reputable coin dealer as fast as you can get there. HOWEVER, I can basically guarantee you that it isn't a 43 copper penny, because only about 10 are known to exist. If it's silver in color, it's a steel penny. If it happens to be copper in color, have someone check it out, BUT, it's likely a fake if it's copper.

How come a 1943 penny is worth so much?

It isn't. Normal 1943 pennies are worth 3-15 cents depending on condition because they are made out of steel and are collected even by non-collectors as curiosities. The only expensive 1943 pennies are the copper pennies which were made by mistake. When they turned on the machines to make the 1943 steel pennies, some copper blanks were left inside the machines and so a tiny amount of 1943 copper pennies were created by mistake. Since there might only be ~15 made, they are worth a lot. But an ordinary 1943 penny is only worth a few cents.
