A '43-D "steelie" would need to be in MS-68 condition (MS-70 is top) to bring a TOP price of $15,000 (low end would be $1,600), so the seller was out to lunch.

I think you missed the point about the bronze specimens being so RARE:

1943 Bronze
10 to 15 known

1943-D Bronze
Unique (there is a known specimen, graded at MS-64 that is worth a half-mil)

1943-S Bronze
5 known

So, if you really do have a bronze specimen and you have resisted in cleaning it, the smartest move you can make is to get it certified by one of the respected coin grading agencies like the two I mentioned. NO dealer or knowledgeable collector will view this as anything by suspicious unless you get it certified. There are a LOT of counterfeit coins out there for the rare specimens.
