1944-S 1C Steel MS66 Certification #18523808, PCGS #82731

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1944-S Steel Cent is an extremely rare off-metal striking created when a steel blank left over from 1943 was struck in the normal production run of 1944-S Bronze Cents.  Only two examples are known to exist.  The finest example (illustrated here) is now a part of the Simpson collection of off-metal 1943 and 1944 Cents, the only complete collection ever assembled of these hugely popular coins.
