i purchased a bag of steel pennies for my  Son who has just started collecting coins. As always I go through the bag to make sure there aren't any hidden gems before he gets a hold of 'em.  I ran across a Steel Penny 1943 that has what I would say is a pretty pronounced double stamp on the date. Enclosed is a picture. I have not sent it to get graded yet, but my investigations have not revealed anything on this variety. I know there is one for the DBL on the D of the Denver coins. Before I sent it out to ANACS, they advised I try and get an idea on the rarity and possible value. Anyway, if there are any out there that have info I would be most appreciative. I'm not a pro a grading but I would suspect it is at least an AU-50, good brightness and little wear, it might possibly be MS state although there is a pronounced finger print on the Obverse.

Looks like an old thread but I'll throw out an opinion. The coin looks to be reprocessed and the date photo needs to be clearer, can't tell.
