Our buyers recently came across an outstanding collection of wartime 1943 PDS Lincoln Steel Cents in rarely seen Superb Gem Uncirculated MS67 condition, and I’m pleased to offer them to you here. As the United States was ramping up its World War II mobilization, copper became an essential metal in the making of munitions and was diverted for the war effort. So, the U.S. Mint turned to steel. All three branch mints, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco, struck Lincoln cents in zinc-coated steel for one year only in 1943. Now more than 80 years old, these fully original Mint State 1943 PDS sets were set aside at the time of issue and never circulated.
After WWII ended, the U.S. Treasury withdrew and melted more than 162 million of these prized wartime issues. Today, among those that survived, less than 5,000 of each mint mark has been graded Superb Gem Uncirculated MS67 by NGC, and less than 150 graded higher! Our buyers couldn’t pass on the chance to get them, and neither should you! You’ll SAVE off single coin prices! Order today while our supplies last to secure a pristine 1943 PDS set of Lincoln Steel Cents for your collection.
