Silver 1943 penny? I think not...

: I was tempting to bid on it as a joke to see his reaction.
: It can't be legal binding, can it?  Since the item does not exist.
: Will ebay force  me to pay $1,000,000.

       No, but they will take you off their list.

But let me say this.    To strike steel cents, the
pressures used on the presses might have been quite
high, and a dime planchet might have been struck
hard enough to expand to cent size. :-)
       Don't bid more than you can afford. :-)
There are cases of cents struck on dime planchets,
why not in 1943?

Still wouldn't have been 'pure' silver, maybe 90%?

Even so, it's advertised as pure (not solid) silver.  Dime blanks are solid
silver, but only 90% pure, so it still isn't right.  And I'll bet it doesn't
say "penny" on it anywhere, either.

Well, "I" wouldn't want to be the one to find out!

Makes you wonder why the guy didn't post a photo of the cent too.

AFAIK, the worst that can happen is that you get
negative feedback and booted from eBay.
