Imagine the fun of opening your own banker's bag filled with at least 30 World War II era coins! You'll uncover 28 Lincoln Wheat Cents Dated 1941-1945 and 2 Lincoln Steel Pennies Minted in 1943. The Lincoln Wheat Penny was designed by Victor Brenner in honor of the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth and first to display the image of an actual person. Issued for just one year at the height of World War II, the 1943 Lincoln steel penny freed up precious copper for America's war effort. It was made from low grade carbon steel, with a zinc coating deposited electrolytically to prevent rusting. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
