Is that like the American 1943 tin(?) penny?

A few thousand coins from when I was a kid (many are foreign and no longer in circulation).

A pound or two of silver, mostly Morgan dollars and liberty walking/Franklin halves.

Some notables like a collection of 6-7 different generations of NYC subway tokens, a 10 Mil coin from 1942 Palestine, a few 19th century coins found in circulation.

During WWII copper was needed for the war effort so after the US joined the war they minted pennies from a silver-colored metal, maybe a tin or some other cheap metal/alloy. Maybe Canada did something similar?

In 1943 they used steel, the 1943 copper penny is one of the rarest coins ever minted.

Correct, I didnt know it was steel and I own a bunch of them. There are apparently only 5 extant 1943 copper pennies.

Sofer* not softer. Probably your autocorrect.
