Numismatic Oddities: The ONE and ONLY coin in the history of U.S. Currency capable of being lifted with a magnet was the 1943 steel penny, sometimes called "the Steelie".  In an effort to save copper for war production, the 1943 mint run used a steel penny with a zinc covering.  This proved to be wildly unpopular with the general public, as they were often confused with dimes and human perspiration caused the edges of the penny (not covered in zinc) to inevitably rust.
