World War II brought several cultural changes, including the change from copper to steel for the iconic United States penny. The need for copper to build munitions prompted the change from putting the stoic face of Abe on steel. Steel Penny Coin Cufflinks provides a link to the past that you wear with just about any type of shirt. Polished steel glimmers under bright lights, as well as remains intact for years due to its moisture resistant properties. NOTE: Please know that the date can vary on the coins used in making these cufflinks so you will likely not receive the date shown. Thanks for your understanding.
