How much is a small date 1960 penny from the Philadelphia mint worth?
In uncirculated condition, it's worth abuot $3.50 -- if circulated, then it's only worth about 25 cents.
The answer is 2007 pennies b/c it is worth more. so ya if you really dont know about inflimation its easy but if you do then you get confused, luckily i dont know much about it just that it effects economy ---- The answer can't be 1908, 1960, 1990, 2006, 2007, or anything like that because no penny is worth more than the other. Every penny is worth one cent.
When you adjust for inflation's which is worth more 1908 pennies 1960 pennies 1990 pennies 2006 pennies 2007 pennies?

Since you asked "If you come across..." I'll assume you found it in your spare change and thus it's in fairly circulated condition. If these assumptions are correct, then it's highly doubtful that your coin is worth more than a penny. Unless there were errors that year or if it's truly an uncirculated penny, then you're probably not looking at anything that spectacular.
A Farthing was one quarter of a predecimal Penny. They were withdrawn and demonetised in 1960. As far as collector value is concerned, it would depend on the year and condition of the coin. At Britains conversion to decimal currency in 1971, a Farthing would have converted to about 0.01 of a decimal Penny.
There really aren't any rare dates among Lincoln Memorial cents unless you're lucky enough to have one of the errors like a double die; those occurred in 1972, 1983, 1984, and 1995. Among non-error dates, 1960 and 1970 "small date" cents can worth a few extra dollars but only if they're in uncirculated condition. Please see the link below for Lincoln cent values.
