During World War II copper, a material used in ammunitions, was in heavy demand. As a result the mint was forced to use steel for cents in 1943. These steel pennies were coated in zinc to help prevent the steel from rusting. In 1944 the mint resumed production of bronze pennies using salvaged cartridge cases. A very minor number of 1943 cents were made of bronze due to a few bronze blanks remaining from the previous year's production. Similarly a few steel 1944 pennies are known to exist.
