1944-D Lincoln Wheat Steel Cent, Struck on a Zinc-Coated Steel Planchet, graded MS63 NGC. An estimated 10 or less is believed to exist of zinc coated steel planchet dated 1944 and with a Denver Mint Mark.
It's important for the collector to watch out for fakes since some where created as zinc coated copper planchets and some where even coated in mercury. So if you think you have an off-metal coin it's best to send it to a reputable grading service to have it examined and for certification and authentication.
