Help to determine date also if indeed rare penny

#1 Unread post by Southernbarbie » Fri Oct 05, 2018 10:45 am

Hello everyone. I'm Tonya and started coin collecting when I was little girl but have just in the recent years dove truly into it all. I have a penny that I need some help with if anyone could lend me a hand. Its a wheat penny and it's dated from the 1940's with Denver mint. My issue is the last number of the date is very hard to distinguish, I've had it for many years now and take it out everyday to look at again and I've compared to ones online and it seems to truly be a 1943 D Lincoln Penny, so I desperately need assistance being im still fairly new at this so I know who to contact or call. Thank you everyone in advance for your help. I will try to post a few pictures, not sure how clear they will be.

A photo of the coin would help.

Weak digits on steel cents are common.

I will be waiting on the images. If you're using a modern phone just hold the camera steady, then crop your images.
