    The reason why it’s Steel penny Is because those coins were produce during WW2 and they needed copper for bullets so they just diverted the metal into bullet making instead of mint making .

    The penny is actually being repelled by the magnet, but is still heavy enough to make contact with the surface of the block. He explains it weird.

      Not really, they minted a lot. (I have like 7 or 8 myself). In fact, if you have a copper penny, from 1943.... that'd actually be significantly more valuable.

      @Joseph Oglez millions were made and they are fairly recent, I have a dime from 1827 that would only be worth about 20 to 30 dollars, a 1943 steel penny wouldn't be worth more

    1943 was the only year the U.S. produced steel cents, if you find a copper 1943 cent or a 1944 steel cent, it's worth magnitudes more than it's weight in gold, assuming, of course it isn't a fake.. Also, for the record, the U.S. has never minted a single penny, only cents, there is a difference..

    If you find a copper penny from one of those years that steel pennies were made they are actually worth a lot of money just FYI. Because they did accidentally make some copper pennies during World War II when they were supposed to make steel pennies. One from 1943 could actually net you $250,000 at auction if you happen to find one
