1944 Penny

Do you have a wheat cent and want to find out its value? Leave a comment and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I have a 1944 wheat penny. Is it worth anything?
This is one of the most common dates for older wheat cents because all together about 2 billion (2,000,000,000) were minted. So far I've found 18 cents dated 1944 mostly in good to extremely fine condition. Very Fine is not worn on the back and slightly worn on the front. Extremely Fine barely any wear and sharp details. I've never found a 1944D or 1944S.

Here's the stat for 1944 cents...
Year: 1944
Mintage: 1,435,400,000
Metal: 95% copper 5% zinc
Value: VF-20 $0.10 or EF-40 $0.20

Year: 1944D
Mintage: 430,578,000
Metal: 95% copper 5% zinc
Value: VF-20 $0.10 or EF-40 $0.20

Year: 1944S
Mintage: 282,760,000
Metal: 95% copper 5% zinc
Value: VF-20 $0.15 or EF-40 $0.20

Thank you for your visit.

A very common coin.

I have a 1944 wheat penny. It seems to be in very good condition, in my opinion, however I am not exactly a coin expert.

There's hardly any wear to the coin, and every detail is still very clearly visible. While there is some blacking to the coin, I have no other way to describe the darkening of the coin, the coin is still relatively a copper-ish color.

I think I'll just hold onto it for a while, but I'm just curious as to how much it's worth at the moment.

Man said...

Color is not always a bad thing, condition is based on the details of the coins; are they all there and sharp.

The wheat stalks in the back should be unbroken, all of Lincolns hair, ear and clothing should be visible.

Then comes wear meaning flat spots that rub away the detail.

AU-50 is slight wear, all details is $0.35
MS-63 is Red, no wear, like new
is $0.75

The price on this coin hardly changes because it is very common.

I found a 1944 wheat penny and the L in liberty appears to be printed on the lip of the coin. I held it up to a regular penny adn it is actually a bit bigger so I dont think the edge is folded. Any idea if this is an error?

Man said...

That is either a mis-aligned die or an off center penny but it is a very minor error.

The value of a 1944 penny starts at $0.02 but with this error youn add $0.50, I know not much 1944 is very common.

1944 steel penny
It has been rumored to exist and would be worth thousand but I've never seen one.

Some 1944 cents were from silver dimes and are worth hundreds.

Jim Mirous said...

I have a 1944 penny with the back mistamped. The back is slightly visible with no ridge.
The front is excellent.
Value? Info?

Man said...

Sound like a struck, damaged or defective planchet. Or just slightly off center in a penny as common as 1944, without a good picture I can only guess $2.00-$4.00 value.

One sided damage is not good indicator of mint error and can occur outside the mint making it worthless.

I believe i have got a pretty interesting penny on my hands. It is a 1944S wheat back in good condition. The color is a silver copper mix or kind of pinkish. Do you have any comments on what it might be worth. thanks

Sounds odd I never heard of this, it is possible a 1944 coin could have been made of silver but I don't know.

Here Fred is an expert.
there are some silver cents if yours looks like one of those drop him an email.

I read about 1943 pennies being worth alot of money if they don't stick to a magnet but what about a 1944 penny that doesn't stick to a magnet?

Man said...

Copper is not magnetic and it is what cents in the US at the time were made of.
1943 pennies are made of steel so they will stick to a magnet. If one is made of copper it is rare and worth a lot.

1944 pennies were made of copper again and will not stick to magnets, but some 1944 pennies were accidentally made of steel.

So if a 1944 cent sticks to a magnet it is rare and worth a lot.

1919 wheat penny? worth anything? hah..I doubt it but I figured it's worth a try

In perfect condition no marks slightly red and full brilliant details it would be $13.00

In fine it is $0.25 you can use it without feeling you lost any money because most dealers pay about $0.05 for them. Not a big deal.

Anonymous said...

you said that a 1943 wheat is 0.10 cents to another person. i just went to a offical web site and saw it is worth between 60000 and 90000 dollars. i think you told the person a wrong thing. also im thinking you might not be correct about the values of other peoples pennies.

Man said...

There is no official website for coins.

I've been collecting for 25 years and I have ten years worth of RED BOOKS and about 100 coin books in my library.

You are confused the 1943 steel cent is worth less then a dollar if it is copper then it is worth thousands.

I give the average buyers price, they use this because it is the industry standards.

Please drop a link of this "official website".

According to the COINage mag. a 1944-D Lincoln cent is worth $36 in good condition, and $48 in Very Good condition. is this wrong? am I holding on to my penny for nothing?

Man said...

1944-D Lincoln cent is worth $36 in good condition, and $48 in Very Good condition????

That is completely wrong. Go on eBay and look up 1944 d cent and you can get shiny high grade ones for $0.99.

The only way I can see a 1944D cent being that valuable if it is the 1944D over S. It is a rare error that has the D mark over an S mark. This error is listed in all coin books and mags.

Anonymous said...

i have a 1944d where do i sell it

Man said...

A 1944D cent could be sold at a coin shop for 2 cents on eBay for 1 cent.

It is too common to sell for profit even in perfect condition and certified it would bring only $1.00.

As I write this some people are wanting a law to exchange old pennies(pre-1982) for 5 cents. Keep the cent and wait for news.

Take it to a professional coin service and they can weigh it and use better magnets to see if it is special or a fake.

Very odd I don't know about this error but it can be caused by a piece of scrap metal being pressed.
Or it was some kind of brockage.

I suspect it is a fake or half of a "magic" coin. Without seeing it it is nearly impossible to tell.

It is worth about $0.10 in very-fine.

I have a 1944 metal penny. They minted 1943 penny's in metal so they could have enough copper for the war. Thay accidently minted some metal penny's in 1944. There was not many minted when they realized they made a mistake, so they stopped minting them. I seen on the tv one night that this man had one and he claims that it was worth $80,000. Please let me know. Thank you.

Man said...

I have a 1944 metal penny.

The metal used in 1943 was Zinc Coated Steel. This is very magnetic.

Take a magnet and place it on the 1944 cent if it sticks then it is steel. Next weigh it. It should be 2.70 grams.

If not it may be fake or an error made from silver or a foreign coin.

The mint did not know any were made, if they did they would have been destroyed. Instead about 75 steel 1944 cents accidentally slipped through.
The last I heard a circulated example sold for $14,500.

It means that it was made in Philadelphia. Pennies that are from Philadelphia never carry a P mintmark only Denver(D) or San Fransisco(S). It is normal.

There were 1,435,400,000 1944 cents from Philly so they are very common and only worth $0.10 in very fine.

Very fine should have all the details clearly visible.

I have a 1960 zinc colored penny that is slightly magnetic. Any ideas?

Man said...

1960 pennies were not made of zinc only after 1982 were they made of zinc. Plus zinc is not magnetic.

It sounds like it may be an off-metal error.
There are several cents made of silver dimes in 1960 worth $1,500.00, but they are not magnetic.

There are also some made on a Cuba 1 centavo blank, again they're nickel, non-magnetic and mostly from 1958.

You would have to weigh it, get a good picture, and then ask here or at Fred Weinberg's site. He is an error expert.

i bought a bulk lot of 1943 steel penny and when i was going through them i found a 1944 steel penny, i checked it with a magnet to make sure, any ideas what its worth?

Man said...

Someone else just ask this so I'll quote myself.

The other way to check is to weigh it.
It should weigh 2.70 grams give or take 0.1 grams.

I've seen forgeries and the weight is right and the metal is right but when checked under a microscope it was a 1943 that had the last number altered.

Fakes are common. Fred Weinberg is the best error dealer and you may want to contact him on what to do next.

There have been several found and they average $10,000.00 I suspect a new find might bring in double the price.

More likely it is a silver cent where a 1944 silver dime was accidentally used instead of a copper blank. These average $1,700.00.

Man said...

1863 and end in 1908

1863 is about $12.00

Key dates worth $50 or more each are 1867, 1869, 1870, 1872, 1877, 1908S, and 1909S.

The range should be from 1859-1909 with two S coins from 1908S and 1909S.

Most cents from 1859-1878 average $20.00 or more.
From 1879-1909 average $4.00 or less.

Man said...

1944 silver penny. It's in near mint condition

Sounds fake. No silver or steel cents were made in 1944.

In 1943 they were steel.
Some errors were made of silver, they are about $2,000.00.

But many fakes were made that are worthless.

You need to weigh it and take a good picture.

Man said...

It can't be silver because it is magnetic.
It can't be from a 1943 steel blank because it weighs too much.
It sounds like a fake.

It doesn't hurt to hold on to it but it failed most of the test known.

Unless you can find a coin minted in the U.S. for a foreign country in 1944 that was steel and weighed 3 grams you just have a fake.

Odd it needs to be weighed because during the same time the U.S. made steel coins for other countries.
If you can find the weight then it would be easier to see if this error is possible and how much it can be worth.

OK, I went to a jeweler and the 1960 steel colored lincoln cent weight is 3.1 Grams. Any idea or thoughts on it. Demetri

Man said...

1960 steel colored lincoln cent weight is 3.1 Grams

I thought it could be a Cuba, Brazil, or Phillipine coin but the weight is not right.

Next a copper cent should weigh 3.11 grams which is exactly yours.

I think it may be some sort of paint.

To be exact you would need to have it looked by a coin ship or grading service.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful but I think it's fake. I hope it isn't. Good luck.

I know of no famous errors in the 1943 cent it is steel but that is not an error.

Any 1944 cents that were made in steel are worth thousand but less then a few dozen were ever certified authentic worth a lot.

Other famous 1944 errors are...
Minted on silver dime worth several thousands.
A Doubled Die Obverse exist and it is a couple of hundred in MS-60(mint state) or better.

Of course there are the standard errors like off-center or die break and those depend on the severity of the error.

I have a 1944 S Penny with the letters "STH" stamped in large letters across the face of the penny. Is this something significant, or is this just someone defacing the coin with a die?

Man said...

1944 S Penny with the letters "STH"

Basically worthless sounds like either it's a love token that someone put their initials and put it on a pendant or chain for someone.

Or an angry collector overpaid for a worthless coin and made sure no would ever overpay again.

If it was given to you by a family member from WWII it may have some folk art value if you knew STH real name.

I have a 1955 penny that looks like steel, but is not. It is in a small casing that a magnet is attracted to it. Any thoughts. Thank you.

Man said...

955 penny that looks like steel, but is not. It is in a small casing that a magnet is attracted to it.

Sounds like someone turned it into a charm or pendant. It has no numismatic value.
That said as a piece of jewelry I've seen it sell for $1.25, if coated in silver.I don't think this is silver because of the magnetism.

Not sure what your asking but a 1944 cent is about $0.03 in low grades so no one will buy it unless you had a couple of hundred.

I found a 1945 lincoln cent in excellent condition which appears to be made of bronze. I have looked every where and can't find another example like it. I also have a 1973 that looks plastic, and a 1980 that is black. It has no damage and also has "oil like" colors in it. Can you help me please!?

Man said...

All 1945 cents are bronze, some were made of bullet cartridges and are slightly off color but have no extra value. In extra-fine it's about $0.20

1973 that looks plastic, and a 1980 that is black.
These are just environmental damaged coins and are just worth their face value.

Which penny is worth the most money? And how much is it worth?

Man said...

Which penny is worth the most money? And how much is it worth?

The problem with that question is that it depends, on grade, year and errors.


Coppers from the 1780s are worth tens of thousands but then so can a high grade error from 1955.

The most valuable coins in G-4(good) that are not errors 1909S VDB, 1877, 1856.

With errors or varieties then 1955 doubled die, 1922 no D, 1888/7.

All are about $900.00 in G-4, some much more.

hi i found a few coins that are diffent from my ohter coins what are they worth? They are: 1944 penny, 1990 penny with a D underneath the 1990, a 1971 dime with a D underneath the 1979, and finally a 2005, 2002, 2006, 1995, 1993 quaters with a D underneath the years(I have 4 2002 quaters with the D?, is there a reason for that?) Most of these like i said have a D on them while all the rest of my coins have either a P or nothing on them.

Anonymous said...

sry did a typo the dime is 1971, oh and what do the D and P on coins stand for? and whats it mean if there is no P or D on it?

Man said...

I'll assume good condition.

1944 penny about $0.03
1990-D about $0.01

1971-D dime about $0.10
1979 about $0.10

2005D quarter about $0.25
2002D about $0.25
2006D about $0.25
1995D about $0.25
1993D about $0.25
2002D about $0.25

Most of these like i said have a D on them while all the rest of my coins have either a P or nothing on them.

D is for Denver
P or blank is for Philadelphia

These are the locations where the coins are minted. It is common for East coast people to get more P or blank coins because the Philly mint is closer.
West Coast people see more Denver coins because Denver is closer.

There are also S for San Fransisco and a few other that are seldom found in circulation.

are the older style pennys supposed to be like one side: upside down, and the other side like:rightside up????.......cause i have a 1944 wheat penny like that.......and if its not supposed to be like that could it be worht money?????

Man said...

one side: upside down, and the other side like:rightside up????.......cause i have a 1944 wheat penny

Yes if you mean that holding the coin with your finger and thumb and the face is rightside up then spinning it will show the reverse upside.

This is normal it's called coin alignment.

Ty for your help. I have a 1940 Lincoln wheat penny with a large S deeply stamped into the front above the date. And on the reverse the large S stamp is bottom center under United States of America. Can you advise on this find we have. Ty in advance JD

Man said...

1940 Lincoln wheat penny with a large S deeply stamped into the front above the date. And on the reverse the large S stamp is bottom center under United States of America.

This is damage. Done outside the mint for some unknown reason. The S should be below the date.

No extra value. As for history this is nearly impossible to find.

I have 2 pennies from 1974, and there is this website that says that most were destroyed. Is there still a chance that at least one of the two are aluminum? Here's the website: http://coins.thefuntimesguide.com/2006/01/rare_pennies.php

10 billion 1974 cents were made in copper.

Of the 1.5 million made in aluminum one went to a museum another the Toven Specimen was authenticated and then the government threatened to take but has not yet.

It is illegal to own so others may exist but people are to afraid to talk.
If real it weighs 0.93 grams.
If fake it weighs 3.11 grams.

But there are errors made of silver and other stuff also known by weight. These are legal and sell for thousands.

You must weigh it to be sure.

i have a 1955 wheat penny, circulated but in good condition. on the date, the first five doesn't look like a 5. it looks like the top of it was filled in. like it didn't form the top of the 5. its just like a little tiny box with a hook coming out the bottom of it. so imagine a 5 but with the top part filled in. thats the only way to describe it. and i was woundering if it is worth anything?

Man said...

This is a minor die break known as a filled die. It has no extra value. So about $0.10.

Yes it's a die chip error but it is so common that it carries no extra value.

This sounds like a better Off-Center coin it my be close to 5% off-center which is the minimum for value. If in high grade it's about $15.00. Anything less then mint would not carry any value.

nickels from 1960,1962,1964 with a D on the back to the right corner of the building between the bottom of building and the wall of the building. The D is outside the building and they can be seen with naked eye. On the front of coins, there is no number or mark between the inferior margin of coin and where the Jefferson profile ends. That space is smaller then other usual coins.They are older coins but Jefferson's figure is more higher than the new coins. You can feel it with the finger. Kind of cameo style but not so high.
Errors or normal? Any value? Thank you !

It is environmental damage and has no value over 1 cent. Clad coins often suffer from this if buried, heated or exposed to acid rain.

Man said...

The hair is normal and
I can not see any doubling because of the blurry image.

1964 and 1966 Lincoln cents, both with double die I think. The letters " In god we tr..." are thicker than the others. The same with letters "ber" in Liberty.
Again the pictures are not clear but the thickness is only an indicator of a late stage die which is not special. Looks like machine doubling and not worth anything over a cent.

They are somewhat errors, especially the 1966 which shows late stage damage in the W of WE it maybe considered a die break. Although errors they hold no extra value since these are expected when dies become old.

This is what happens with environmental damage. If you put it in the dirt outside for a couple of months his will happen.

What happens is the zinc at the core is reacting to water and exploding outwards. Bubbles form very easily on modern cents.

Google "bubbles on Lincoln cent" and you may find more.

Man said...

The dime seems like a weak die maybe a minor broadstrike no extra value.

1946 cent it is just damaged copper is so soft that any hard pressure will alter the design.

Sounds like someone coated it with steel. It most likely is a fake but weigh it to make sure.

If it weighs 2.70 grams then you may have something good. Any other weight means either a fake or a rare error made from something else.

Again there are two steel types.
