What is the value of a 1943 silver wheat penny?

Answer

The 1943 steel penny is valued at anywhere from $0.45 for a decent one to $10.00 for one that is in perfect condition. If it is a Seattle Mint, the value would increase to $25.00 for perfect condition. There was not a silver or aluminum penny. Steel was used as the replacement for copper during World War II.
