Let's see if I can stump ya!

Does anyone know the type of steel used in the steel pennies minted for the copper shortage of 1943?

I was browsing a novelty catalog, which features grusome Halloween masks and rubber dog poo Christmas ornaments, but also, a bag of these old steel pennies!

I thought they might weld up cool in a can somehow with some powdered contrasting steel. Maybe try to get 'em on edge for a nice linear pattern down the blade...

It seems someone once told me they are zinc coated (bad), but I just don't know. That was when I was a kid.

Anybody?
