About 3 cents.
A 1957 wheat penny would be worth about 20 cents in very fine condition.
1865 would make it an early Indian head penny, not a Lincoln wheat penny. It's not the rarest of dates. In worn condition it's worth around $10, and in uncirculated condition it's worth a little over $100.
This coin is common and is worth 2 to 10 cents in circulated condition.
Wheat pennies or any other US pennies were ever made of silver. They would be worth more than a dime if they were made of silver. A regular 1941 wheat penny is worth around 3-7 cents in circulated condition.
The last wheat-back cents were made in 1958, so a 1992 one would be impossibly rare. If your coin has the Lincoln Memorial on the back, it's an ordinary penny worth 1¢.
If your 1919 wheat penny is silver, then it is either silver plated or a counterfeit. In either case it has no collector value. Dan Well, Dan, what if it is a cent-on-dime planchet error? That would be about $250.00
It depends on the date. A 1909 S VDB cent may be worth thousands of dollars, however, wheat cents from the late 1940s and 1950s are only worth 3 or 4 cents.
It would be gray.
Most likely an Indian Head cent. However, it would depend on the date, mintmark, and condition of the penny that would determine which is worth more.
not rare at all just worth one cent unless maybe you got it verified as a mint error then it would probably be worth a ton
What would the worth of a 1901 penny be?
Wheat Back cents did not begin production until August, 1909. Any 1903 penny would be an Indian Head cent.
Really depends on condition and whether it has a "VDB" on the reverse between the wheat ears. In average circulated condition one with no VDB would be worth about 50 cents, one with VDB about $2.
1919-S is a slightly better date for wheat cents. In well worn condition it's worth about 10 cents -- lightly worn, with all the vertical lines in the wheat ears clear and separated, it's worth about $2.00 -- a nice uncirculated one is worth about $30.00.More:According to USA Coin Book, a coin in good condition would be worth about $0.20 while an coin in MS60 mint condition would be worth about $42. I coin in MS65 brilliant uncirculated grade would be worth about $125.
1901 would make it an Indian head cent. It's a common date, usually selling for around one dollar.
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.
It's only a penny spend it.
It is worth a penny.
The U.S. never struck a silver cent. It would be worth more than a dollar! Your coin is an ordinary penny that was plated, and is worth only a penny.
No fair posting this again. My answer is the same - if I or anyone else knew what the future would bring numismatically, I'd be putting away quite a set for my children.
1¢ It wasn't struck that way at the mint. Someone used a metal punch to add those numbers later. That makes it a damaged coin and it has lost any collector value. In any case you haven't lost much, because 1941 is a common date among penny collectors. Undamaged but circulated, the coin would have been worth a few cents to a quarter depending on how worn it is.
If the wheat penny is a normal 1955 wheat penny with a bit of wear, about 5 to 10 cents. If the coin is uncirculated (mint state), it depends on just exactly how many marks (even very tiny ones can hurt the value) it has on it, the average would be anywhere from 25 cents to a few bucks or even more if the penny is pristine. However, if you have a RARE 1955 double die variety wheat penny, the value of the coin SKYROCKECTS to potentially thousands of dollars. It's practically a once-in-a-lifetime experience finding one of those, however.
There is no such thing. Aluminum wheat pennies were made one year during the war due to the scarcity of copper. However, they were being made with copper by 1945. In circulated condition it has minimal value. In mint state it would be worth 25cents or so to a collector.
