1943 Steel US Penny The 1943 silver-colored penny was a special wartime issue made of steel and coated with zinc. During the Second World War copper was badly needed to make shell casings. In response to the wartime demand for copper, pennies that year were made of steel. They are not great rarities, though. These coins are generally worth about 12 to 15 cents apiece in circulated condition, and as much as 50 cents or more if uncirculated.

1945 Army-Navy Football Program The official program for the 1945 Army-Navy football game depicts a cadet and a midshipmen working together to paint a V for Victory to celebrate the successful conclusion of the Second World War. The annual Army-Navy football game is one of my favorite sports events. Few of the game's participants will ever play pro football, so it is the closest thing to a true amateur contest in the NCAA that garners national attention.

FDR Wheelchair Photo 1941 This is a rarity: a photo of FDR in a wheelchair. The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Library has only three photos of FDR in his wheelchair. Roosevelt had been unable to walk since 1921 when he was afflicted with polio. With the help of a willing and co-operative press, Roosevelt managed to conceal his disability from the public for the rest of his life. This photo was taken at Hyde Park in 1941. FDR's shaggy dog, Fala, is on his lap. The girl is the granddaughter of FDR's friend.

HMS Hood Explosion 1941 The battlecruiser HMS Hood was the pride of the British navy between the two world wars. It was actually obsolete by the time the Second World War started, but it was urgently needed despite its shortcomings. On May 24, 1941, in the Battle of the Denmark Strait, the Hood was engaged in an 11-minute skirmish with the German warships Prinz Eugen and Bismarck. A single 1700-pound armor-piercing shell from the Bismarck ripped into the Hood causing a giant fireball and a subsequent massive explosion. The Hood split into two sections and sank in just three minutes. About 150 minutes later, only three surviving British sailors from the Hood's crew of 1,415 were plucked from the cold Atlantic by the destroyer Electra: Ted Briggs, Robert Tilburn, and William Dundas. None was older than 20. The sinking of the Hood and the loss of more than 99.7 percent of its crew stunned the British public. The three survivors became reluctant celebrities and were always emotional when pressed to talk about that day in 1941. Dundas died in an automobile accident in 1965. Tilburn died in 1995. Briggs, the youngest of the three, died in 2008 at the age of 85. Briggs participated in a 2001 ceremony in which a memorial plaque was laid on the Hood's wreckage and debris field.

Winston Churchill Machine Gun Photo On July 31, 1940, British prime minister Winston Churchill visited the coastal defenses near Hartlepool, England during the bleakest period of the Battle of Britain. During his inspection of the troops, he was photographed holding a machine gun (or tommy gun as the Brits call it). The British press thought the photo was unflattering and it got little attention. However, the Germans obtained a copy and thought it had potential as anti-Churchill propaganda. They equated the photo with lawless American gangsters and used it to create a leaflet. Thousands of copies of this photo, bearing the caption 'Wanted for Incitement to Murder,' were dropped over London in an attempt to portray Churchill in a negative light. It didn't work. Far from being offended, the Londoners loved the image of their gun-toting PM. Thus the German propaganda leaflet had the opposite effect from what had been intended. It became a prized possession for Londoners.

Jeannette Rankin - Lone Vote Against War with Japan Many people find it hard to believe, but after the deadly surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the vote by the U.S. Congress the next day to declare war on Japan was not unanimous. Jeannette Rankin, a Republican from Montana, cast the lone dissenting vote. Declaring the war to be unnecessary and adhering to her beliefs as a lifelong pacifist, Rankin cast the solitary negative vote. Rankin had been a congresswoman during the First World War and had voted against America's entry into that conflict--along with 49 others--in 1917. Returning to politics more than two decades later, Rankin had, in fact, campaigned in 1940 on an anti-war platform and had won. Not surprisingly, very few people in her home state supported her decision after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. So unpopular was her stance that Rankin decided not to run for re-election when her term expired in 1943. Interestingly, Rankin did not vote against declaring war on Germany and Italy following their declarations of war on the U.S. a few days later. Instead, she voted merely 'present.' During the remainder of her life, (Rankin lived to be nearly 93) she travelled to India seven times and was a devotee of Gandhian principles of non-violence.
