Is my 1944 s steel wheat penny worth anything if it's heavily damaged? But still it's the real deal.

He had a large collection of pennies. He's had them for years and years! And it definitely is steel I did the magnet test, and with a magnifying glass u can clearly see it stamped 1944 with no alterations. But the penny has so much damage it's hard to see with just the eye. My question is it still worth anything at all in the condition that it's in? If it were to check out as the real deal which I'm pretty sure it is... Is it then worthless due to its current state?

    It is worth 1 cent. Nothing more.

    I think you are probably mistaken about the last digit. What you think is a "4" is far too close to the other "4". It's just wishful thinking.

    agreed, what your seeing as a "4" is just corrosion......and wishful thinking..
