Yes! In the day I guess I never thought to keep them. Some are from my dad’s coins he just was emptying pockets I guess lol.
Look up 1944-S steel.
I’ll check! Thank you!
I've been picking Wheaties out of my change for the past 25 - 30 years now and setting them aside. When I'm at the register and I happen to see one in the courteous change bin I'll switch it with a newer penny. As of now I've got about $10 - $15 worth of Wheaties collected in total. I was going through a bunch of them last night and I've got quite a few S mint Wheaties. Specifically a 1918S and four 1919S pennies. Obviously because I'm living in San Francisco has something to do with the frequency of S minted coins that I'm coming across.
I probably shouldn't have even mentioned it, but I looked up the 1944-S and saw there were two known examples of the 1944-S steel cents along with a few steel D's and steel Philadelphia's.
Metal Composition: Steel Coated Zinc
Diameter: 19 mm Mass
Weight: 2.7 gram
then the description says there could possibly be more, not that one is likely to be found in the wild.

It would need to be a steel cent and that one obviously isn't one.
