    So it sounds like they were exposed to salt water for those ten years? What do they look like? It would be useful to see a picture or two (you can upload pics using the "Upload Files" button when replying).

    Coins should never be cleaned. Read this article for more information on why: Why you shouldn't clean your coins.

    We would suggest starting with gently rubbing them with water using either your fingers or a microfiber cloth. That's pretty much all you would ever want to use on coins to avoid damaging them. Please do post some pics if you can.

  • Andrew, the "missing" mintmark means it was minted in Philadelphia and coins from that mint do not have a letter on them.

    Check out our library article covering mintmarks.

    • That definitely looks like an error, although for 1942 there are no known errors that make a 1942 Wheat Penny extra-valuable. It's probably worthThat definitely looks like an error, although for 1942 there are no known errors that make a 1942 Wheat Penny extra-valuable.

    If the penny is truly red then it could be worth some good money. However, true red pennies are rare and it is common for pennies to take on unusual colors after circulation depending on the environment.

    The "B" looking like an "R" could be damage or it could indeed be an error. We do not appraise coins, and doing it over the internet would be impossible, anyway. To be sure you would have to take the coin to a reputable coin dealer for appraisal.

    Coin Values replied to a discussion, 1944 Steel Penny
    It is impossible to tell by a photo if it is a steel penny or not. One thing you can try is seeing if it sticks to a magnet. Copper/zinc pennies are not magnetic, but steel pennies are.

    It is impossible to tell by a photo if it is a steel penny or not. One thing you can try is seeing if it sticks to a magnet. Copper/zinc pennies are not magnetic, but steel pennies are.

    That said, there are only a couple dozen 1944 steel pennies in existence. It would be highly unlikely to casually come across one.

    Keep in mind that 1941 pennies are not rare, and your circulated specimen probably wouldn't be worth much more than ten cents or so. If you are a penny collector it's good to hang on to it but don't expect it to be much more than a keepsake.
