Why purchase this 3-Coin 1943-P+D+S Steel Lincoln Cent Set?
The Lincoln Steel Cent, issued for a single year in 1943, is a marker for a moment in American history and a testament to America's ability to adapt during times of crisis. After the United States entered the Second World War in December 1941, many factories accustomed to producing consumer goods re-purposed their facilities to manufacture military equipment, and the need for copper and nickel became more urgent for the war effort rather than coinage. As a result, the Lincoln Cents released in 1943 were 99% steel coated with zinc (to prevent rust). The steel pennies were struck at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints. This set includes one example from each Mint.

The obverse features a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. The inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST" sweeps above, with "LIBERTY" at left, "1943" and the appropriate Mint mark at right.
Two curving stalks of wheat are depicted on the reverse, framing the centered inscriptions "ONE CENT" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." "E PLURIBUS UNUM" curves above.
