Thanks for the question! 1943-cents were struck from steel to preserve copper for World War II. Rust is consistent with most of these, and the composition was used for just a year. Examples were struck at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints and all are common. They are typically worth around a dime, and here's a great resource on their value and history, see: https://www.thespruce.com/worth-of-1943-penny-768863

Again, thanks and let me know if I can be of further help. Please use the 5-star rating system to rate my professionalism as it's the sole way experts are recognized by JustAnswer for our service.
