There are no steel cents with that date. All 1942 cents were made of bronze (copper with a bit of tin and zinc). 1942 cents are common and are worth about 3¢ in circulated condition.

In 1943 the Mint made cents out of steel to free up copper for use in ammunition. Depending on condition and mint mark a 1943 steel cent is worth roughly a quarter to a half dollar.

The bronze composition was resumed in 1944.
