The reference to the 1943 bronze penny is technically accurate, though most sources refer to it as having been struck in copper. Bronze is an alloy of copper that contains a small percentage of tin, and this correctly describes the mistakenly-struck 1943 pennies. The penny was made when the wrong planchet was placed into the machine. Only about forty 1943 copper (or bronze) pennies were struck, and only 12 to 15 have been found. See more
