Really cool cats over at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. You would’ve thought that I was “Madonna” the way those guys treated me. I was so mesmerized by all of the antiques, they have in there, I believe I was there for two hours, just looking, unbelieveable! When I went in I was so hot, they offered me a cold bottle of water, how cool is that? It felt like home to me. I wanted to get a price for some old jewelry that was passed down by grandma, I was well satisfied. When I left the shop, I was singing “Money, Money, Money.
The 1943 penny is one of the most talked about pennies in the Lincoln Cent series. Over a billion examples of the 1943 Penny were produced between the three mints of the United States during the year of 1943. Just saying that would make anyone wonder what all the commotion is surrounding the 1943 Penny. And they would be right in their strange curiosity if it were any other year being talked about other than the 1943 Penny of the Lincoln Cent series. Firstly, to aid in the massive war effort, both in the Pacific and European theaters, the country needed bullets. More specifically: shell casings for bullets. And, since the Lincoln Cent was made from copper, why not sacrifice the copper slated to be used in production of the 1943 Penny.
