I went through my coins and I found one of the 1943 Silver Pennies. I but it
to a magnet, and guess what? Anyway, What is the scoop behind this penny?

KC,

If your 1943 US cent sticks to a strong  magnet, then it is like all the
rest of 1943 US cents and is made of zinc coated steel (the normal
copper composition was suspended that year to help meet US WWII
needs).

If the cent doesn't stick to the magnet, please post back to
rec.collecting.coins.
