With a silvery coating on it, it has now become a novelty item with no collector value.

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

Wheat pennies or any other US pennies were ever made of silver. They would be worth more than a dime if they were made of silver. A regular 1941 wheat penny is worth around 3-7 cents in circulated condition.

It's made of steel, not silver, and it's shiny because it's plated in zinc. If it still has a full zinc coating, it's worth around 50 cents.

Wheat pennies from 1943 are zinc-coated steel, not silver. On average, they're worth 10 cents.

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