About 1943-S Lincoln Cents - Wheat Reverse
To help save copper for the war effort, the United States Mint began striking Lincoln cents from a zinc-coated steel composition in 1943. Like other steel cents, 1943-S pennies were saved in huge quantities by collectors and remain widely available today through MS67, with small quantities known in MS68.
More than 1 billion steel cents were made across the three then-operating mint facilities, including those in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. Steel cents are highly popular both with diehard coin collectors and novices alike, with the latter group generally regarding these one-year-only coins as interesting novelties. Some numismatic mass marketers sell many thousands of the three-coin steel cent sets in any given year.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.
