1943 Copper Cent $500,000 Discovery
Post date: Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 11:01

A pair of the rare and popular 1943 copper cents were recently discovered, and certified by NGC. The coins are worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars each, and are a remarkable discovery! 1943 copper cents are the most valuable mint error for U.S. coins, with the 1943-D being the most valuable of them all. These are not worth as much as the 1943-D, but are still likely to bring well over $250,000 each, for a combined value of $500,000 or more. 

We are told these will go on auction over the coming year.
