Now a complete 12-coin set of WWII Lincoln cents issued from 1943-1946! You’ll own all three 1943 PDS Steel cents, and all nine Shell Casing cents of 1944-1946 from the Philadelphia, Denver & San Francisco Mints.
Because copper was needed for WWII ammunition and armaments, the 1943 cents were struck in zinc-coated steel. These unusual silver-colored coins were issued for one year only. Because of their unique metal composition, the U.S. Treasury melted more than 162 million over the years, and today they are difficult to find. Plus, you’ll get all 9 Shell Casing cents minted from 1944-1946, created from spent shell casings that were melted down and combined with pure copper, creating these legendary coins. Now, over 70 years later, these historic Wartime cents are true pieces of America’s past that actually circulated – just imagine who could have held them!
