Reddington makes two misstatements about 1943 bronze pennies. First, he claims that only four were made; estimates range between fewer than a dozen to 20 or more authentic specimens that have emerged over the years (eminent coin-grading service PCGS has certified 7 authentic pieces, and estimate that 15-20 are known to exist). He also states that collectors prize the 1943 bronze penny because "they believe they were minted in error; bronze one-offs when every other penny was made of copper." The fact is that all official U.S. cents dated 1943 are composed not of bronze or copper but of zinc-coated steel -- a substitution made because copper was so scarce in that critical wartime year. Pennies were actually minted on steel blanks due to copper rationing for World War II. 1943 bronze pennies are believed to have resulted from a handful of leftover bronze blanks from the prior minting year remaining in the hoppers of blanks - or intentionally struck by mint employees.
