Charmy Harker is the Penny Lady, one of the leading specialized dealers in the area of Lincoln cents.

In this CoinWeek Exclusive video shot at the 2017 ANA World’s Fair of Money, CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan sits down with Charmy to discuss everybody’s favorite oddball Lincoln cent, the 1943 “Steel Penny”.

The coin was struck in large quantities, but for one year only. To complete the set, collectors will need an example from each of the three U.S. Mints: Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. An affordable coin even in Mint State, premium examples can carry significant premiums.

But beware of re-processed coins! Some national dealers offer shiny re-plated 1943 cents, which can be deceptive if you don’t know what to look for.
