You have what is known as an "Off-Center Strike Error".
This happens more often than you might think. With all the billions of pennies minted, many thousands of these errors find their way out of the mint and into circulation.
Depending on how much off-center your coin is, its value will range from a couple dollars to about $50 -- having a visible date usually adds to its value.
i have a penny ,the back is stamped ,the front is slightly stamped like an outline of the face , maybe 2 numbers ,very hard to see
These generally sell in the $5 to $10 range.
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.
the date of a penny is on the front
With out seeing the coin, it sounds like it maybe an off-center strike error. Show it to a dealer or collector to find out what it is. As to value? Don't expect to retire.
vlue of a 1919 wheat back penny
yes he is on the back of a penny... actuallyy i think hes on the front
Any coin with a "genuine" minting flaw would have some value, above the usual, as a collectible coin. Genuinely flawed coins are not necessarily known about or documented until somebody turns up with one, since they are an "accident" of the minting process, and have escaped detection during quality control at the mint therefore, a valuation cannot be anticipated. A reputable coin dealer should be able to identify and confirm the coin as genuine and make a valuation.
A "Penny Farthing" was a type of bicycle, so called because of the disparate size of the front and back wheels which were likened to a Penny and a Farthing. The Penny Farthing bicycle had probably long since fallen from favour by 1922.
About 1 penny. The gold plating takes away value.
please answer the ?
I used to collect coins and one of the things that i learned was that any misprint on any bill significantly increases the value of that bill. I reccommend that you take it to some kind of coin show or even a coin store and check it out.
"Wheat back" cents were struck from 1909 to 1958 and have the familiar picture of Abraham Lincoln on the front. A US cent from 1907 is called an Indian Head cent (or penny) and has a wreath on the back. Please see the Related Question for more information.
the most valuable is the penny in the us has a head on the front and back hope this helped :) :) :) :) :)
If by a "silver penny" you mean one of the 1943 steel cents, then in mint condition it's worth a dollar or two. If you mean some other date, then it's silver plated and has no collector value. And your 1967 penny has been altered -- no added value.
A Penny Farthing is a popular form of 19th century bicycle so named because of the disparate size of the front and back wheels. Please make up your mind whether you have a Penny, a Farthing or a bicycle, and resubmit your question.
A Penny Farthing was a 19th Century bicycle invented in 1871 by British engineer, James Starley. A Penny and a Farthing are both coins from the now redundant British predecimal currency system. The Penny Farthing bicycle was so named for the contrast of the size of the front and back wheels which were likened to a Penny and a Farthing.
In the U.S., from 1909 to 1958, the Wheat Penny was coined with Abraham Lincoln on the front, and ears of wheat on the back.
Around 3 cents.
the penny farthing
Average value is 5 to 10 cents for most coins.
