Answer I imagine QUITE A BIT! Although, I am anything but an expert on coins, I can garauntee you that there are some really obsessed collectors out there who would give a pretty penny (pun intended) for that. The US mint (and the mints of most other countries as well.) are really obsessed with searching out the mis-struck coins and they also do a good job of preventing them from ever even happening in the first place, what you have there could be worth a LOT of money. SAVE IT!!!! (or give it to me if you feel like it.)

In reality ... If this is a mint error, it happened when two coin blanks entered the stamping machine at the same time. One would have Lincoln's head stamped on one side and a blank back, and the other would have the Lincoln Memorial stamped on the back and a blank front. Usually, this will also cause a mis-shaping of both coins, because there is twice as much metal in the press as there's supposed to be. These error coins can be worth well over $100, however... This error is magnitudinally rarer than the number of people asking questions about this type of coin. Therefore I have to believe that what you have is an altered coin -- something somebody altered after the coin left the mint -- most likely one of two pieces used for a "Magician's Coin", and has no value.

You can be sure by getting a professional first-hand appraisal. Check out the ANACS website for a list of shows where you can take your coin and get it examined : anacs (dot) com/shows (dot) html Good luck! (replace (dot) with . when copying the link)

Only if you have the other 49 pennies in the set.

The coin is only one cent, the counter stamped date adds nothing to the value.

The value of a 1970 Canadian penny is likely to be only one cent Canadian. Unless the penny was stamped incorrectly or has some other very unique characteristic, chances are that it has no value as a collectible and is only worth a penny.

Lincoln is pictured on usually pictured on the front of the penny. 2009 is the only date that he was on the back. These pennies are very common and worth only 1 cent.

If your penny is purple, it's probably only worth a penny.

Unless it's uncirculated or proof it is only worth a penny.

No, no genuine Indian Head penny is stamped "COPY" on the reverse, or obverse. All such examples are replicas containing no collector value. The only value that such coins have is the value of what they are made out of.

It's only a penny spend it.

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.

Two wheels on a Penny Farthing: the front one is larger than the back one in proportions similar to the former currency items penny and farthing, which was only worth a quarter of a penny and was much smaller.

I was researching the same thing, as i myself has one. According to my research, the Speidel bracelets are only 10k gold. Only worth 30-40 dollars.

Yes they are only worth a penny besides in BU-condition they might be worth 25 cents. They are not worth keeping.

An uncirculated 1861 Indian head penny is worth %162. A penny in good condition is only worth $20. These prices are good as of January 2014.

This is not a penny made by the US mint. It is most likely only worth it's metal value.

User Avatar

The "2" was added by someone who used a metal punch after the coin was in circulation. That makes it a damaged coin worth face value only.

The value of a 1912 s penny depends greatly on the condition of the penny. In poor condition, it is only worth a penny, but in very good condition it may be worth $10 or more.

These coins are still in circulation and are only worth face value.

A 1938 penny may be worth several dollars, depending on the condition of the penny. A penny in poor condition may only be worth one cent, but collectors are often willing to pay more for one that is in excellent shape.

the 1964D has a few known minor double-dies but you need to know what one you have. Take it to a qualified dealer.It's the only way to get a price.
