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.

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.
That's an expensive penny!
