if the size of your penny is the same size as a copper penny and
your penny is SOLID silver then a silver penny would be about 2.1
grams and today(june 25 2012) silver price is about $28.79 an ounce
and there are 31.1 grams in 1 ounce making you penny worth about
$1.90 but since the (kind of ) rarity it would be about $3 to
somebody on ebay(+shipping) hope i helped :)
