Let's be honest.. pennies aren’t the most useful coin.

However, a 1943 copper penny might be a worth a whole lot more than you realize!

During 1943, copper was strictly regulated. To conserve copper for the war effort, the country decided to strike all new pennies on stainless steel.

Pennies from 1943 are such a unique find that they could be worth as much as $85,000 under the right circumstances.

Do you think you have one!?!

If you have any old pennies at home, check them all carefully. I'm dumping my coins out tonight!
