have you ever wondered how much the small change in your pocket could be worth?
the easiest way to determine if your 1943 cent is copper (and valuable) is to test it with a magnet, if it sticks to the magnet, it is a steel penny, and not valuable (but still pretty nifty), if it does not stick, then you might have hit the jackpot...have a expert authenticate your coin, but be prepared for disappointment: there are many counterfeits of this coin, but if you have the real deal a guide price for one in 2008 was when a 1943-S authenticated copper wheat penny went for more than $100,000 to a private collector, but wait there is more,
how about a 1982 "No P" Dime? before 1980, dimes minted in Philadelphia didn't have a mint mark, starting that year, a small letter "P" was placed on Philly dimes above the date, in 1982 an error occurred when the mint mark was omitted from a small number of dimes, leaving them p-less, easy to fake but the real deal is worth on eBay $3000! if you want to check for more valuable American coins have a look here, good hunting!
