True Values, Not Really pt.III

More frequently asked question about coins.

Give me some history of the Indian head penny.
  • First the image on the coin is actually Liberty wearing an Indian headdress.
  • Variety 1 is from 1859 has a wreath on the back with no shield.
  • Variety 2 is from 1860-1864 and has a wreath on the back with a shield.
  • Variety 3 is from 1864-1909 and is bronze , not copper-nickel like the other varieties.
  • Values:
  • Variety 1=$15.00 at G-4, and $110.00 at EF-40, or $2,000.00 at MS-65
  • Variety 2=$12.00 at G-4, and $45.00 at EF-40, or $640.00 at MS-65
  • Variety 3=$2.00 at G-4, and $10.00 at EF-40, or $220.00 at MS-65

What are wheat penny values? What is the value of old wheat pennies? Valuable wheat penniesIMG_0322


Yes I get it wheat pennies are commonly found so I'll repeat what I said before,


  • Wheat pennies in low grades go $0.02-$0.10 in general.
  • Check out the years below for coins that are valued more.
  • Rare dates: 1909-S, 1909-S V.D.B., 1914-D, 1922, 1931-S
  • Scarce dates: 1910-S, 1911-S, 1912-S, 1913-S, 1914-S, 1915-S, 1922-D, 1922-D, 1924-D

What are the values of a 1917 American penny, 1926 penny and a 1945 penny?


  • 1917 = $0.20___1917D = $0.30___1917S = $0.50 at Good grade
  • 1926 = $0.20___1926D = $0.25___1926S = $2.25 at Good grade
  • 1945 = $0.02___1945D = $0.02___1945S = $0.03 at Good grade
  • Of course the fist two will be worth more at higher grades, not so much the last.
IMG_0322
How do I clean wheat pennies?


  • Soap and water.
  • Distilled water.
  • But the most effective is using Acetone ( not nail polish remover) or xylene for "cleaning" copper coins.
  • All of these DO NOT involve brushing but if you need to brush try a super-soft brush of natural fibers, gently in small circles.



Worth of a 1947D nickel?

  • $0.30 at VF-20 and $3.50 at MS-65

IMG_0322Where can I sell my coins mercury dime online?

  • eBay, because most companies only want the best.
  • Start at $0.01, no reserve and list for at least 7 days.
  • I've seen ads of places that buy coins and Littleton does pay top dollar but the reject lots of coins that don't meet their standards so if you think your coin is great go to them or other famous coin companies.

Why is my Sacagawea coin peeling?

  • It maybe plated with something or may have chemical damage. It probably isn't a true error.

How much for old Canadian pennies(in low grade)?

  • 1912-1920 about $0.50
  • 1920-1936 about $0.20
  • 1937-2005 about $0.10

What is the value of a 1959 Canadian quarter?

  • About $2.00 in MS-60.

What is the value of dollar silver certificate dated 1957b?

  • About $2.50 in very fine and $5.00 in CU (crisp uncirculated).

Do you have a coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you

Man said...

1838-C is a key coin and starts at $2,500.00 in VF-20 (the headband is only slighlty warm and the word LIBERTY is bold).
In mint condition (MS-60 very minor wear) it is $35,000.00.

ARE KENNEDY HALF DOLLARS WORTH ANYTHING.

Man said...

Kennedy Halves have to be at least in MS-60 (almost perfect, some spots) to be worth these prices.

1964=$5.00
1965-1969=$2.00
1970D=$14.00
1971-2005=$2.00

All proof coins and special finishes are worth more but only in original packaging or coin holder.

Alright, i was digging through my great grandma's old coin collection and found a 1969 penny that seems to be struck in the goldish material as the recent dollar coins. I am sure this coin has lots of value, but i want to make sure before i try to sell it to someone for very little.

Man said...

I wrote about these coins before they were coated with gold outside the mint and are worthless.
Here's a previous post were I talked about it LINK
Here's an image of some 1960's gold pennies I own PICTURE

An error penny may exist made from foriegn coin brass but it would be a different size, weight and off-center then a 1969 penny.

i have a wheat 1917 penny with no letter below, i have been told it is worth anywhere from .50 cents to $650.00, how do i know for sure?
and what do i do or take it if it is worth anything? (San Diego)

Man said...

The price range of a 1917 penny is $0.20 to $2,200 which is one of the largest.Here is why...

1917 is $0.30 in fine

1917 Double Die Obverse it has a doubling in the date, is $140.00 in fine.

1917 Matte Proof is so unique only 1 is known to exist.

If you can see a doubling on the date or if the coin looks perfect, like a new penny then send it to PCGS.com and they will grade it, for a fee and you can sell it.

But if it looks normal and is in ugly shape then it is not worth much.

Man said...

1776 WM (William Moulton New Hampsire pattern)

5 varietes are known all turned out to be fakes but made in the 1860s. Your sounds like a Chinese fake. But still hold on to it even a counterfeit is worth something if it can be traced to the mid 1800s.

If you can take a good picture if it and I'll forward it to some experts.

Here is a site that explains the fakes LINK>

1909-D uncirculated is $900.00 as long as it is not soldered/attached to the pendant any damage causes the price to cut in half.

1904 cent VF-20 is $5.00

I have a 1909 S-VDB penny. How can I determine if it is a counterfeit or a real one? Thank you!

Man said...

1909 S-VDB penny counterfeits are usually made by adding an S. Under high magnification the S should have a notch and a die chip if it is perfect then it is most likely a fake.

Some are made very good in that case you need an expert here is a good article LINK

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the information on the 1909 S-VDB!! I believe, that after reading your information, that it is real. I paid $600.00 for it, as a gift to my dad for Christmas, and I did not know anything about this counterfeit coin prior to the purchase!! Thank you!

I have nickles from 1939,40 41, 43,51,53, and 54 are they worth anything or should I just put them in the coffee can for the next time i go to the bank.

Man said...

Nickels in very fine condition.

1939 about $0.25
1940 about $0.25
1941 about $0.20
1943 about $1.00
1951 about $0.25
1953 about $0.08
1954 about $0.10

The 1943 is made of 35% silver and will always retain a silver value. I suggest at least keeping any that one.

If you want to start collecting nickels you have a good starting point. The first Jefferson Nickel was 1938.

It is about $0.10 in extra-fine.

1928 Indian head nickel the 1928 not very visible but everything else is and the rims are complete and the word liberty on it is very visible

The fact that the date is not that visible makes it around fine condition. The key is to have the horn of the bison completely visible.
Can you see a mintmark below the word FIVE CENTS?
1928 is about $2.50 in fine.
1928-D is about $5.00 in fine.

My grandfather has a very small penny, it is about 1mm in size. How much would it be worth?

1917-d wreath penny, it is in good condition

This wheat cent is about $0.30 a little less if the smudge is bad.

very small penny, it is about 1mm in size

This would be an art piece. Art is subjective and the price could be around $5.00 as I seen in some souvenir shops but if it is greatly detailed it may be more.

Man said...

1975 dime with no mint mark at all

This is normal. Until 1979 all Philadelphia minted coins did not have mint marks, they are blank.

Starting in 1980 all coins haves P, D, or S mint marks.

The article you read was talking about a proof coin that should have an S mintmark that is missing.
In 1968, 1970, and 1975 some proof coins were made without mintmarks and are worth a lot but they look different then circulating coins.

Proof coins are very shiny and have a mirror finish.

1953 wheat penny but the sides are flipped...the lincoln side is one ways and then when you turn it over the wheat side is the other direction (upside down) is that normal

U.S. coins have coin alignment which means when the head is facing up and the coin is flipped left or right the reverse is upside down.
Hold the coin with two fingers and twirl it left/right and the reverse will be upside down.

If not then that is a Rotated Reverse Die error about $75.00.

I have a hollow penny that only has the back half and rim - no circular pattern inside but lines like those on raw matals - not magnetized but magnet will stick to it
The other is 1984 penny with an extra piece of copper sticking up right in front of lincolns head - kinda like a bullet shape - sticks up higher than the date but about the same as the same height as the rim. If anyone has any idea about either then please let me know. Very appreciated.

Hi. I bought a 1776 WM New Hampshire Half Penny for $20 at an antique mall. I realize now that it is probably a fake, but it doesn't say "COPY" on it. It has the branches on the obverse with 1776 and "LIBERTY - AMERICAN" on the reverse with "WM" in the center. It looks like you've dealt with these before and I would like to figure out whether or not it is a fake. Would you please E-mail me at tbehnke1@new.rr.com with instructions on how to send you pictures of it? Thank you! -Jeff

No need for a picture as only an expert can tell in hand if it is real.

That said this is most likely a Peter Rosa replica.
His 1776 WMs have been floating around for year and causing confusion since they are so well made fake.
I suspect if you bought it for $20 that is what it is worth. But if you suspect it may be real it would cost a lot of money to have a grader like PCGS to tell you for certain.

I am confused on why a 1953 Lincoln Wheat Penny with no marks is selling for 3 to 10 cents,yet I just saw one on ebay listed for 890,000.00 dollars....Why? There was no explanation. What could possibly give it so much value?

Because on eBay anyone can sell lint for $100,000. kosaka31 is either trying to get publicity or doing some kind of scam. Only 35 transactions shows a low volume for this seller and should not be trusted.

The only good thing with eBay is that there are multiple 1953 cent most for $1.00 or less if circulated.

These do not exist. At least none were proven real by NGC or PCGS, if real they would be worth hundreds of thousands.

Submit the coin to PCGS and have it professionally graded.

It may cost up to $300 to find out.
