Don Lutes found an ultra-rare coin in his pocket as a teenager in 1943. That same coin was sold in a recent auction for about $200,000.
ORLANDO, Fla. — A rare 1943 bronze Lincoln penny has sold for more than $200,000 at a Florida auction.
Heritage Auctions says more than 30 people bid on the rare coin Thursday night.
Only 10 to 15 of these pennies, mistakenly minted in bronze instead of steel, are believed to exist. They were made at a time when bronze and copper were being saved to fill metal shortages during World War II.
