Only a couple of these have been authenticated, and are worth over $100,000. However there are many counterfeits out there -- copper pennies that have been zinc plated. Do the magnet test -- a real 1944 steel cent will stick to a magnet. If it passes this test, and has been examined for an altered date (using a strong magnifier), then you would need to get it certified (preferably by PCGS or NGC).
US cents were struck on steel in 1943 not 1944.
Sorry, no US twenty cent coins (1875-1878) were struck in 1944 look at the coin again.
Then it isn't a genuine US coin. All steel cents were dated 1943, and while there were some steel cents struck in 1944, all of them would look steel because the copper cents weren't plated with anything so they would be a steel cent dated 1944 not a copper-looking cent dated 1944.
About a dollar depending on its condition.
If real? Priceless. However, since US steel pennies were only struck in 1943 (and a VERY small number in 1944), it is a worthless fake. Now, if you had a 1974 Aluminum penny -- THAT would be worth quite a lot.....
A US steel Lincoln cent is 5 to 10 cents in average condition.
Sorry no steel 1 cent coins dated 1907, only 1943.
The only 20 cent US coins were minted 1875 - 1878. You have mis-read either the date or the denomination.
1c 1943 is the expensive one $10,000- $85,000 This is incorrect! The 1943 steel cents were the common ones for the one year. During the changeover from the steel planchets of 1943 to the shell-case brass planchets for 1944, a few of the 1943 steel planchets were accidently stamped with the 1944 date. There were about 27 P 1944 steel cents authenticated, about 7 or 8 Denver 1944 cents and 1 or 2 San Francisco mint coins authenticated.
Make sure your references are correct. Normal 1944 cents were made of copper and do NOT stick to a magnet. However, a few steel blanks from 1943 were left over and accidentally were struck with the 1944 date, basically the flip side of what happened when some copper 1942 blanks were struck with the 1943 date. A genuine 1944 steel cent WILL stick to a magnet. While not quite so famous as its 1943 cousin, 1944 error cents sell for anywhere from a few thousand dollars if circulated up to as much as $110,000 for a pristine uncirculated one.
I found a web site for that... The 1944 & 1944 d are worth .03 cents & the 1944 s is worth .04 cents.
About 75¢ for the small amount of silver it contains.
Not very valuable at all. these were produced in the billions. not rare but a nice thing to have.
1944 is one of the most common dates for Lincoln wheat cents. It's worth about 3 cents now.
1 US cent has the same value the world over! i.e. 1 US cent
Zinc coated steel, not silver. Average value is 5 to 10 cents. The US has never made a one cent coin from silver.
1856 3 cent coin value
The 1944 Lincoln cent was the first US coin to exceed ONE BILLION in mintage and is very common and most are face value or 2 cents. Nice uncirculated coins are a dollar or less.
First of all the US did not make 20 cents pieces in 1944. Also US coins do not say "Twenty centavos". So your coin is fake. Since it's fake it has no collector value. However if the coin is made of silver it has a silver value.
The 1944 Philadelphia issue (no mintmark) Lincoln cent was the first US coin to exceed ONE BILLION in mintage. average value is 3 cents. A brilliant uncirculated coin is 30 cents.
The US has never made a one cent coin from silver. Zinc coated steel, not silver.
Copper is the normal metal for 1944 pennies -- it's worth about 2 cents. Now if you had a 1944 made of steel, or a 1943 made of copper, then you might have something. Dan
The 1944 Lincoln cent is the first US coin to exceed a mintage of ONE BILLION and is very common, retail values are 3 to 5 cents for average circulated coins.
It's actually steel with only a thin zinc coating. In average condition, a "steelie" cent is only worth 25 to 50 cents. In better condition its value depends on its mint mark and how worn it is. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1943 US cent?" for more information.
About 1 cent.
