lea said...Here's the stats for a 1916 cent...
hi.i am curious to find out how much my wheat pennies might be worth. i have a 1916 wheat(no lettering) and also a 1958 wheat. thanks
Metal: 95% copper 5% tin and zinc
Value: G-4 $0.30 (G=good with the lines in the wheat missing)
------- EF-40 $8.00 (EF=extremely fine with all details sharp all wheat lines visible)
Here's the stats for a 1958 cent...
Metal: 95% copper 5% zinc
Value: VF-20 $0.10 (VF=very fine no worn spot on back, slight wear on cheeks in front)
Basically for all wheat cents if it's this bright and the stalks of the wheat are sharp with full lines those are higher grades and of course worth much more. Even the littlest scratch or cleaning the coin will devalue it to only a few cents.
Sorry it took a while for a response I was out.
Thanks for your visit.
