@oahuwriter I hope too, I have many old coins collected in different European countries, I have to check if they have a value now that those currencies do not exist anymore.

The rare steel pennies (unlike the common 1943 steel pennies) are from 1944 and have sold for as much as $373,750 in an August 2008 auction.

Indeed and worth so much. A penny for over a million dollars.

The 1943 info is incorrect. It is copper pennies minted that year that are rare, and a copper penny from that year sold for $1.7 million. Steel pennies are not rare for that year at all, in fact most pennies minted that year were steel pennies and I have a couple of them.

Wow! My father collected coins and gave his collection. I should look through it, but I doubt it has anything of that caliber.

You just never know, until you check them. People who collect usually have valuable ones.

Not sure whether I have old coins of my country. But I think my dad kept money from Japanese invasion era. Mom keep it in her drawers for documents.

Don't know about them. Perhaps an internet search can yield some facts? Good luck.
