1943 pennies are actually made of steel, coated with zinc.

This was done to save the copper for the war effort.

There were over a billion of these minted, so they are not rare.

You can find them at most coin shows for 5-25 cents apiece in circulated condition.

It's made of steel, not silver, and it's worth about 5 cents.

They aren't silver, they are steel. They are worth anywhere from 3 to 10 cents in average condition.

It sounds like you're referring to the 1943 wheat penny, which is actually made of zinc-coated steel, not silver or aluminum. In circulated condition, one is worth about 10 cents.
