About 40 1943 copper cents are known to remain in existence. The easiest way to determine if your 1943 cent is copper (and valuable) is to test it with a magnet. If it sticks to the magnet, it is a steel penny, and not valuable.
Because all the pennies from 1943 were struck in silver, there were a few mistakes made where some pennies were struck in copper. To see if you have a valid 1943 copper penny, take a magnet and see if it sticks to the penny. If it sticks, then you have a silver plated penny dipped in copper, which is worth about 12 to 15 cents. If your penny does not stick, check the date on the penny to make sure that the 3 is actually a 3. People used to cut out the outsides of the number 8 to make them look like the number three. If you have the real deal here, go to a coin dealer. They can give the value of the coin directly.
