Default Extremely rare penny!

>.> or so i thought... So two weeks ago I was hunting in the backyard, I got a few wheat pennies. After cleaning and a quick glance I thought what was "1943" on one of them, today I was looking into older pennies online and came across a page on the US Mint saying that the 1943 copper penny is the most sought after and one of the rarest because there are only 40 known to exist today. Imagine my excitement! So I grab my stack of wheats and start looking through them, here's where my dreams are crushed at a quick first glance the other week I thought it was a 1943 and wrote it off cuz i thought only the steel 1943's were worth something, take a closer look today after reading that posting on the US mint, its a 1945

1943 copper penny according to coin-trackers is $60,000+ I thought i was gonna be able to get that 2008 Honda Shadow Spirit I have my eye on down at the local bike shop *cries*
