Best Answer

This is a novelty item engraved after the coin left the Mint. While it may have some value among a few collectors, standard coin collectors consider this a defaced item and do not believe it merits any significant resale value. Masonic Pennies, like this, generally sell for a few dollars apiece to collectors.
