1956D Wheat Cent

Do you have a wheat cent 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.

It has been nearly two months since I found an older American coin in my change, by older I mean older then 1959. Today when putting away my change I found a 1956-D cent which I have no idea where I got it since I spent the whole day shopping.


It's true that this coin is not particularly valuable or rare but it is a wheatie and over 50 years old. Only the third 1956D cent I found and seeing how so many people are searching bank rolls it may be one of the last.

Here are the stats for this penny...
Type/Country: 1 Cent/United States
Year: 1956D
Mintages: 1,098,201,100
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.10 in VF-20

Do you have an old penny 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.

254 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

I got a coin back in change which I believed to be a penny. When I got it home I saw that it had the United States Treasury symbol of the front and the other side said uncirculated philadelphia. I'm not sure what it is, and it has no apparent value on the coin. I have look for it on the internet and I can't even find a picture of it. Do you have any idea what this could possibly be?

This is a medal that is included with Mint Uncirculated Sets. It has been in certain sets since the late 70s.

Here's the best pic I can find LINK

These medals are used whenever a coin is discontinued leaving an empty space in the mint set so the drop in this piece. When collector open the sets they put these in circulation because most are worth $0.10-$0.25.

lucky you! I found mine in the city of Kathmandu. In one of the corner shop at Kathmandu palace square.

chrys said...

do you scan your images or use a camera? Just wondering!

Man said...

I'd gladly go to Nepal to search for coins.

Most of my coin images are taken with a scanner at 450 dpi.
My scanner can go up to 6400 dpi which I can use to get some great detail.

My camera skills are low and I don't have a macro lens so I take only a few shots with the camera.

chrys said...

you can get good deals in Kathmandu, provided you know what you are looking for and you know what is authentic and not!

I received a 1956 $10 bill from an ATM, that caused quite a commotion in the store. The clerk thought that it was countefit, but after an officer from the local fraud unit took a look at it, he said "it's just old." My question-is it worth more than $10? -Meredith

Man said...

1956 $10 bill

That year doesn't exist. If it is American it has to be 1950 or 1950A. I would also need the serial number but they have at least a value of $12.00.

MG said...

Great blog...I don't have a penny question, but I have a $50 bill, 1950 E series. Seems circulated to me, an old relative who died had it hidden away and we found it in her things. The odd thing is, the engraved part seems off center. In other words, the plain border is almost non-existent on the left side, but is over-exaggerated on the right side. Is this unusual? Thanks, MG

Man said...

$50 bill, 1950 E series. Seems circulated

The off-center is a cutting an error and is not that unusual and won't add any extra value.
It is about $100.00 in that condition depending on the serial number it may be worth more.
The 1950E is the last of 1950 series and some of the bills are worth thousands.

Hi,

Someone I know might have recently found a 1944 steel penny by pure luck. If it does turn out to be the real deal, how much would something like that be worth?

Man said...

1944 steel penny

There have been several found and they average $10,000 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.

Anonymous said...

Re steel penny

He's taken it to a few dealers to have it looked at. One said it was a clever forgery, while the others said it looked real. So far the only test that has been done is to see if it sticks to magnets (it does), and he's already gotten a $10,000 offer, but is holding off for now to see if he can get a better price. Your price estimate is good news. Thanks for the help.

Man said...

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.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for your response. The $10 bill is actually a 1950 series C (per my teen who has younger eyes than I do!). If the serial # is at the upper right hand corner, it is I46116532A. Do you have an idea of it's value? Again, this is the ATM bill that I received. Thank you. -Meredith

$10 bill is actually a 1950 series C (per my teen who has younger eyes than I do!). If the serial # is at the upper right hand corner, it is I46116532A.

About $21.00. It is not rare but only 9,000,000 were printed which is mid to low level range.

If it is really rough and circulated then it is worth less then listed. Still a nice find.

I have a golden dime. Is it worth anything?

No it has been plated outside the mint.

I have found several gold pennies and although nice looking they cannot be sold for any extra money.

No.

Never use anything to clean valuable coins. For non-valuable coins try soaking them in virgin olive oil for about six months then dip them in acetone to remove the oil. It's long and slow but preserves the coin.

My husband Wheat Penny with the letter "L" missing from the word Liberty. We have not been able to find any info on this error.

Man said...

Wheat Penny with the letter "L" missing from the word Liberty

This is either a Struck Through Grease error which means some gunk got in the when the coin was being struck.
Or a weak strike means the die used to press the coin was too old.

Either one does not bring any extra value, the second is not a real error. This is very common on all coins, especially pennies.

A normal 1955 cent is worth about $0.10 in very-fine.
There is a famous variety that has the date doubled it is an error worth about $1,200.00.

1961-D and a 1960-D silver penny. Along with that I have a 1953 silver penny.
These are either errors or some sort of after mint junk.

They need to be weighed. If they are about 3.11 grams they are fake worth nothing. Any other weight would have to be researched to assess value.

1921 Silver dollar
If it's a Morgan Dollar it's about $18.00.
If it's a Peace Dollar it's about $125.00. The peace dollar has the word PEACE on the reverse.


You either have a very rare and valuable collection or less then $15.00 of coins.

I've got a couple questions.

First off, I have a 1971 D penny that appears to be silver, but is not steel. (It didn't stick to a magnet.)
How can I tell if it has been plated with something, or if it is indeed an error?
Note: It has maintained beautiful luster and has minimal tarnish and is nigh mirror-like in appearance.

I also have an 1882 Morgan dollar in very good condition. It has minor scratches/hairlines, and the strike is still bold and detailed. (I'll scan it when I get home to show you the condition.)
How much could this be worth?

I hope this blog is still alive. It's an old post, but your comments don't have dates, so I have no idea when the last activity was.

Thank you for your time.

Man said...

It's plated because an off metal error would never be mirror-like.

Weighing it should confirm this.

About $22.00.

I also left this question under the "no nickel found heading" so if you see it there don't bother answering it twice. Thanks :)
I was just wondering how do you tell if a coin is worth anything? I have hundreds of coins (American, Canadian & a few from Bermuda)
Most of my coins are in GOOD shape & are from a variety of years ranging from the 1940’s to present. The ones I am mainly interested in are the pennies (both CAD. & USA) from the 1940’s & 1950’s. I also have a CAD. Quarter from 1941 & 2 USA Quarters from 1972 & 1973. Are they worth anything?
I also have a coin that looks like, but is a little larger than the CAD penny & it has “NEW PENNY 1” on one side with what looks like a crown with a gate & chains & on the other side is the Queen (just like our CAD. penny) there is no date, or country info. on this though, any ideas?

Man said...

Anywhere you post a comment is fine I read and answer them all.


I was just wondering how do you tell if a coin is worth anything?
I have the Red Book by Yeoman which you can get from the library or buy it at a bookstore.

Quarters from the 1940s from any country is worth about $11.00 because of the silver.

Quarter after 1965 are just face value unless perfect and untouched.


“NEW PENNY 1” on one side with what looks like a crown with a gate & chains & on the other side is the Queen

This is a British penny made after 1971 it is just about $0.05.

I have a 1932 Canadian penny. It has the picture of a king with a crown on the oposite side.It also has a rim dent just above the "A" in Canada. It is stapled into a cardboard coin holder and is is printed in pencil on the coin holder MS60 (what does this mean?) Is this coin of any value because of the rim dent?

MS-60 means mint-state 60. The highest is MS-70 which is perfect.
The rim dent would not affect value by much. It probably would not grade above MS-60.
It's about $15.00 assuming the rim dent is very minor and not from outside damage.

i have a quick question i heard rumors that if a coin had the letter d on it it was more valuable is this true? al so heres a link with a pic of my coin on it. http://www.dummocrats.com/images/x/2005/nickels.gif- I.S.N

Man said...

Not really. For older coins this was "mostly" true but since 1939 the amount of D(Denver) coins are the same as other coins.

For your nickel 2005 Bison
2005-P 448,320,000 were minted
2005-D 487,680,000 were minted

So the rarer coin would be the P not D. Yet so many of both were made that they hold the same value.

The KG is the designer of the coins, George Kruger-Gray.

American 2000 Dollar Coin with an eagle on the front and a woman's face
She is Sacagawea a historic explorer and guide. The coin is just $1.00.

1967 Centennial Pennies with a small tilt when you flip it over (one side will be straight and when you flip the coin over, the head or bird will be tilted)....1967 Centennial Nickel with a big tilt as described
Sounds like a Rotated Reverse error unless it is more than 90 degrees it is just $1.00 or less.

1941 and 1953 Canadian Nickels that stand out to me [but i can't really describe why]
1941 has nothing special so about $0.20

1953 has shoulder folds are two parallel lines that look like a a strap on her shoulder. The coins with the strap also have flared "I"s meaning all the letter I look like I not a straight |
It may also have a small maple leaf on the back nearly touching the edge or far away from it.

a couple of years ago I found a strange penny in the register at work. It's a 1956-D penny, with a lincoln head and wheat back. It is silver colored and non-magnetic, so I know it isn't steel. I can't seem to find anything about silver pennies besides the zinc and steel. What is it? Is it worth anything?

Man said...

1956-D penny, with a lincoln head and wheat back. It is silver colored and non-magnetic, so I know it isn't steel.

Two possibilities:
1. Fake made by coating a penny in a thin layer of silver. No extra value.

2. An Off-Metal Error made of a silver dime or another type of metal. About $1,500.00 more if not silver.

To check, weigh they coin if it weighs 3.11 grams it is a fake.
Any other weight needs more investigation and is probably an error.

They are 2.75 grams and 19.9 mm
The white metal is 70% copper, 18% zinc, 12%

This has to be verified by an expert like PCGS it may cost $40+ but if real it would sell for about $700.00 depending on grade.

It is most likely a fake.
Take it off of the charm and weigh it.
If it weighs 3.11 grams it's a fake any other weight requires further research.

re: 1953 steel penny in charm: Your response was so fast- Thank you! The penny weighs 1 ounce which I believe is 28.3495 grams. Any ideas?

Man said...

The penny weighs POINT 1 of an ounce. I guess I need more coffee. 2.81 grams

Very odd because a steel penny should weigh 2.70 grams.

According to all the data I have this error is not possible.
From what I can guess if it was in a charm it could be a fake.

That said it could be an unknown error if you can get some one to see the coin in hand, like a local coin dealer.
Or take some good pictures of it and post it on a free photo site so that more coin experts can see it that would help.

Sorry I couldn't be more exact.

There are a few but the most famous is the 1943 bronze cent at Mint State 61 that sold for $112,000 in a 1999 auction. Other 1943-D and 1943-S sold for more.

This one sounds like damage but it could also be an error called Die Clash were the reverse image of one side of a coin is present on the other side.

Either way they have no extra value.

I have found a 1941 wheat penny that seems to be made of an alternate metal. No mint mark, is NOT plated, appears gold/brass in color.
Weight is 3.4g

I have found absolutely NO info on alternates/oddities in '41. Any ideas?

Very odd I checked the foreign production figures at the time and no coin comes close to that weight.
It may be some type of planchet error. It should I now of some as high as 3.30 grams but never 3.4 grams.

The only thing left is to have it graded, it may be label off-metal unknown? or try a local coin club or dealer just for an inquiry.

I'll try to find one locally. I did find one other occurrence of this on another forum, so there's at least two.

For comparison.
Thanks for the reply, and Merry Christmas!

If you have that forum's link please drop it here.

The pictures looks like the coin had been polished which may affect the weight but usually less.
Not to point fingers but did you try multiple scales with 0.01 accuracy.

Merry Christmas to you too, I'm cooking Christmas dinner right now :) waiting for family all weekend.

Umm, yeah that was me. No chemicals were used, just a cotton cloth. The only reason was that my mind refused to believe what my eyes were telling it.
This came from a collection from my grandparents, and has spent the last 50 or so years in an olive jar. The patina on the other coins range from a deep red to almost a beige, very close to the dull areas on this coin. That combined with the year, and that I found no info on Brass in '41, kind of drove me to be sure it wasn't copper. (or bronze, as it were)
And no, my only scale goes down to .0, no further.
The other thing I noticed was a "grain" to the coin, as though it were present before stamping. It is present on both sides, running NW-SE.

Oh no, a cleaned coin is considered damaged and would drop the value 90%. Cotton is very harsh on coins and most grading companies will not grade cleaned coins even if it is a rare error.

Typical in thick planchet errors.

Brass or improperly mixed cents usually weigh less but at most adds 0.15 grams meaning 3.11 + 0.15 = 3.26 still less than your coin.

"1960 20F Belgie ????? not listed check the date or describe more" Sorry about that the date is actually 1980 and the coin does have a 20F on the back with the date and BELGIE. On the front however There is a mans face facing to the left (if your looking at it) and some type of squiggly mark under his head, im not sure if its some type of writing or what it is.

Im not sure if it is a copy though.....its in pretty rough shape, but the words are still readable. Is there any value to this coin if it is in fact an original coin? or even if it is a copy does it have any value?

I also found a few more coins today and they are american.

Thank you so much for checking all of theses coins for me. Hope you had a great christmas and have a very happy new year.

I dont know if you know anything about paper money or just coins but i found something interesting that was left to me in my grandfathers will....

An 1896 $2 silver certificate and the note features art of Robert Fulton and Samuel F. B. Morse (from what i have found out so far) surrounded by a design that occupies almost the entire certificate. Do you have any idea what this is worth?

Also an 1879 $5 Liberty Head Gold Coin that i found a couple of years ago at a yard sale and its enclosed in a plastic case and doesnt appear to have ever been opened. The coin was only $10 at the yard sale but im hopin its worth more than that.

Please let me know and thanks!

About $400.00 in very-fine but many fakes exist, I suggest going to a jewelry to make sure it is real gold.

i founded a 1956-D penny, but the D is very closed to date. Any info about it?

1956-D penny, but the D is very closed to date

This is common among older coins since the mintmark was punched separately. So no extra value.

Hello. My name is Jamie. and recently my gramma passed away. We were going thou all her belongings when we found a bag of pennies. All ranging from 1928 and up. Now I haven't made it all the way through this bag, so I am unsure if there are any ones that are older. So, we have decided to hang on to them for our children. Do have any idea, "when or if" these pennies would be worth anything? And justa little update, I just found a penny that is dated 1918. Can you tell me anything about this penny in its self? To contact me it's cringeyes@hotmail.com .. Thank you so very much.

Hey man, it's me from Dec. 24th. I had that brass cent graded. As follows:
1941 1c struck on a planchet 3.41 grams.
Mint Error XF40
85%Cu 11%Zn 4%Sn

The grading was done by NGC. This shed any light on who's planchet got struck? I have the mint's list of foreign coins minted, but it's too vague to narrow down. Perhaps you know of a better resource, or course of investigation?

I have a 70 page foreign/US coins list and that mixture is not listed or even close.

I checked Heritage auction and several were sold as extra-thick improper from $75 to $200.

Also a Google search says the same...

Not a foreign planchet but improper mix, apparently 1941 had plenty.
