Best Answer

The lack of a mintmark on '''any''' US cent means it was minted in Philadelphia. In circulated condition, about 5 cents. Uncirculated, about a dollar.

Is there a 1958 D silver or steel penny?

No. A 1958 US cent is 95% Copper and 5% Zinc. Any "silver" cents you have are almost certainly plated. Steel cents were only made in 1943, when copper was needed for the war effort, and no 1¢ coins were ever struck in silver. Among other reasons, a silver cent would have been 1/10 the size of a dime, or about as big as a pencil eraser!

What is the value of an E Pluribus one cent dated 1943 with d under date?

The "D" indicates that your cent was minted at the Denver Mint. Assuming it is a circulated steel cent, it is worth less than a dime at retail. Uncirculated, it might bring up to 50 cents. 1943 cents were made of zinc-plated steel to free up copper for use in ammunition shells. The combination did not wear well (the zinc turned black and the steel rusted) so in 1944 the usual composition was restored, with some minor adjustments since many of the coins were made from recycling those same shell casings. Also, please note that **ALL** U.S. coins carry the motto "E Pluribus Unum" (look at the coins in your pocket change!) so this is NOT a distinguishing characteristic.
