|Zinc-coated Steel Lincoln Cents, which were issued in 1943 because of the increased demand for copper in connection with World War II, have been popular among collectors almost since the day they were issued. This 1943-S Lincoln Steel Cent has been graded MS67 by PCGS and is encapsulated in the newer-style edge-view holder. The coin has also been certified by CAC as being solid for the assigned grade. Although there are many examples of the wartime Lincoln Steel Cent in the MS67 grade available on the market at any given time, this example is not your average MS67 steel cent. High grade steel cents will typically have a more flat or satin finish look to them with minimal flash. The coin offered here is quite flashy with semi-prooflike fields. The semi-prooflike fields on both sides are also full of die polish lines that are evident of the freshly worked dies that gave rise to the proof like appearance of this coin. The devices of this coin also show a light cameo contrast that is also not typical on a steel cent and which adds the attractiveness of the coin. Only a couple of small marks are noticed under a close inspection, but none are significant or distracting. This is an impressive WWII issue Lincoln Steel Cent with superb eye appeal.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
