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.
US steel cents were only in 1943, on average, value is 5 cents
The US only made steel cents in 1943. Any silver-colored cents dated 1942 are plated. You can always use a magnet to test a suspected steel coin. If it doesn't stick to a magnet it's not steel.

Steel pennies were only made in 1943, during World War II. All 1969 US cents were struck in bronze. Your penny is almost certainly plated for use in jewelry or something similar. It's considered to be an altered coin and has no added value.
No. No genuine US coin other than the 1943 steel penny will stick to a magnet. If you have a US coin that sticks to a magnet other than the steel penny, it is a counterfeit.
