RJ, I think that the steel pennies were only distributed in 1943. As I remember, someone told me that they made about a half dozen of the '43 pennies in copper.

Rusty, I'm looking for the address of the Montaltos on Clark near North Ave. They lived on the east side of the street and I believe in the 1400 or 1500 block. Any help would be appreciated.

We used to ice skate there in winter. Some of that neighborhood is still the same.

I didn't know any of the other people you mentioned. HJ and I used to go to the North ave./ Larabee YMCA. Ilost touch with him when I left the neighborhood, but found him again a couple of years ago. He had been an executive for a company in Minnesota. We met in 2010 at the old Lincoln Park boathouse.
