50-Piece 1943-P Lincoln "Steel Cent" Roll Set

Now, you can have your own 50-coin roll of those "Steelies" that are in lightly circulated condition and arrive in a protective coin tube!
50-Piece 1944 Shell Case Pennies Roll Set
With World War II in full swing, most natural resources were reserved for the war effort and, included on that list, was copper. To account for the sudden loss in material, the U.S. Mint resorted to using spent copper shell cases for Lincoln pennies struck in 1944. Now, you can own a piece of WWII history with this set of 50 U.S. pennies made from shells collected from WWII battleships and battlefields! Arrives in a coin tube; circulated condition.
