1941 Zinc Cent?

Q: We have received an inquiry regarding a 1941 zinc cent from Russ LeBeau. Does anyone know what this is, or have any theories?

A: Not exactly a '41 Zinc 1C but there is a '42 "WHITE METAL THICK PLANCHET" 1C that is listed as UNIQUE (most likely is) on e-Bay. It is item #132533523. For this time period of type and coinage these sound like special coins. Bud Szurek
