Best Answer

There were over a billion pennies minted in 1943 out of steel coated with zinc. In circulated condition, they'er worth about 5 cents. What you are probably confusing this with is the rare 1943 COPPER penny. A few dozen of these were accidently made in 1943 from old copper blanks. These sell for tens of thousands of dollars. They are also highly counterfeited -- usually by copper plating a steel 1943 cent -- check with a magnet to eliminate 99% of the fakes (a real one will not stick to a magnet).
