CAN YOUR 1943 STEEL PENNY PAY FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION?

Don’t we all want that to be true!… But it could. According to PCGS grading company and realized auctions all over the world an MS67+ (and above) steel penny can bring you thousands of dollars! Unfortunately, most of the ones found now a days are in poor circulating condition. 1943 steel cents are U.S. one-cent coins that were struck in steel due to wartime shortages of copper. A few were minted on a copper planchet and those are the ones to keep on the look out. They are considered an error. An estimated 40 examples are believed to have been struck, with 13 confirmed to exist. The error occurred when copper planchets were left in the press hopper and press machines during the changeover from copper to steel blanks

 Keep in mind that 1943 steel pennies were 684,628,670 minted, so even though your chances of finding one are high, the ones in MINT condition are quite hard and expensive.

Holiday Shopping On A Budget!!!!!


Where can i find the best deals for my Christmas presents? 
Why not try a local own pawn shop for great deals and amazing items.

With the holidays approaching most people do a lot of shopping whether it be food, decorations, or gifts. Celebrating the holidays doesn’t mean you have to break the bank, not at all. Since the average retail store sells the items with a discount for the holidays their prices may still be way overpriced or over budget. A great alternative to shopping at the mall or even online shopping are your local pawn shop. Know that being said there are some people that have an issue with buying “used” items, but some pawn shops offer items that are brand new in the box or items in “like new” condition. Pawn shops tend to have unique or similar items that you see at these big box stores, but at a much lower price. A lot of people worry and wonder if it is safe to buy at a pawn shop, and the answer is yes absolutely. Never be afraid to walk into a pawn shop and ask for all the information about the item, it never hurts to ask.
