Best Answer

There are two ways to have a 1957 silver metal wheat penny : 1) If it was struck on the wrong planchet (like the silver planchet for a dime). This would be considered an error coin and can be worth as much as $50 2) If somebody has silver plated a normal penny. This would be considered a novelty item and would have no added collector value.

What is a series 1957 b silver dollar certificate?

1957-B was the last series of silver certificates printed in the US. They were actually printed between 1963 and 1965; the "B" indicates they were the third issue in the series that started in 1957 (the first issue doesn't have a letter). Like all silver certificates, a 1957-B silver certificate represented $1 worth of silver metal on deposit with the US Treasury. The number of silver certificates was limited by the total amount of metal held by the government. Up till 1968 it was possible to redeem a silver certificate for silver metal, but that practice ended when silver was deregulated and its price floated on the open market. At that point silver certificates were treated just like any other $1 bill, and became simply a medium of exchange.

What are wheat pennies worth?

Wheat pennies are around 10 for 10$ its a good price i have about 5000 wheat penniesMoreIt's simply not possible to give a blanket answer. Wheat cents were made for 50 years and at 3 different mints. Some of them (1957, 1958) were minted by the billions and are about as valuable as beach sand. Others (1909-S VDB, 1914-D) were minted in very small numbers and can sell for thousands of dollars. You have to organize your coins by date and mint mark, then check a coin guide such as the ones linked below. Yes, it can be time-consuming but the alternative is not knowing if your collection is worth only 3 or 4 cents each or maybe a few hundred bucks.
