In general no. Wheat penny's from the 1940s & 1950s are very common with average retail values of 5 to 10 cents. But as with all US Coins the dates mintmarks and condition of the coins determine the actual value.

It depends greatly on the year or condition. A general rule is that any wheat penny where the year is readable is worth 3 cents at a minimum. There are some year/mintmark combinations worth quite a bit such as the 1909-S VDB cent worth several hundred in worn condition and several thousand if uncirculated and other years such as 1914-D. As a general rule, the older the coin the more it is worth. Coins in the '40s and '50s are usually only worth a buck or two if uncirculated and 3-5 cents if circulated.

Wheat cents can be valuable. However many are not. These coins are common and can still be found in circulation. The rarest Wheat cent is the 1909-S VDB coin.

The current value of any year of wheat pennies is at least 3 times the face value. Some notable values include the "1909 S" valued at $75 and the "1909 S VDB" valued at $600.

A lack of mint mark simply indicates that the coin was made in Philadelphia. What determines the value is both the date AND mint, as well as condition.
