There's no way to tell the difference without having the metal analyzed. It doesn't seem likely that someone would try to counterfeit the common 1943 steel cent -- it's only worth a few cents. The one that sticks to the magnet is likely the real one. The other one could be a zinc plated, altered date, copper penny from ?? year. It's also possible it was struck on a foreign planchet, especially if it is slightly different in size or weight. It's impossible to give values without knowing exactly what you have. There is no difference.

How can you tell if your 1943 penny is real?

If it is silver in color and sticks to a magnet, it is real (and worth between a dime and a few dollars). If it is copper and doesn't stick to a magnet (and has not had the date changed by some nefarious means), it is worth several thousand dollars. you could tell if it is very rusty and you also can go to a secailest
