Comments

The 1944 steel coated zinc cent is a "Transitional Error" which occurred during the changeover from steel coated zinc back to bronze. The most noticeable variety in this year of steel cents is the 1943-D with the prominent doubled mint-mark. There is another variety that is often overlooked, the 1943-S with inverted mint-mark.
