Is a us war bond dated march 1943 worth more than face value?
Yes--I own one--and it's worth about $200. You can find out exactly here: http://www.treasurydirect.gov/BC/SBCPrice
HIGHER!!! It is worth $150,000!!!! Correction The above response refers to an AMERICAN copper penny dated 1943. All Canadian cents dated 1943 were made of copper, while 2010 cents are copper-plated steel. 1943 Canadian cents are worth around 50 cents to a dollar depending on condition, so they're certainly worth more than 2010 cents but not a huge amount. To explain the value of a 1943 AMERICAN copper cent, the US Mint switched to zinc-plated…
1943 is a common date for a brass threepence. Worth about 50 cents or so in worn condition and about $5 if it is a perfect example. However, the silver issues are a bit more scarce and a silver threepence is worth about $1 in scrap if it is completely worn down, but average grade examples are worth about $5 and if uncirculated it can be worth $20-30 or so.
The U.S. has never minted a silver cent. 1943 cents were struck in steel and can look silvery if they aren't rusted or tarnished, but all 1945 cents were made from copper. If your coin is dated 1943 it's a steel wartime coin worth maybe 25 to 50 cents. If it's dated 1945 and is silver in color it's been plated and is worth 1 cent.
