1941 Wheat Penny

Do you have a wheat cent and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Penny! Penny! Penny! That is right I used the slang term for cent. I am a rebel like that.

Seriously it is officially a cent but it is okay to say penny the term is interchangeable I will not deny common language. Even the U.S. mint uses the term on their official site.

Here is one wheat penny I recently found.


I must say it is nice to find an American coin in my change. I mean an older coin.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1941
Mintage: 887,018,000
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.15 in G-4

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.

1950 nickel and it is in perfect condition no scratches dust or anything.

Assumig a high grade of Mint State 65 it's about $6.00.

If it were Perfect (MS-70) it would be at least 100 times the value.

it has to be about ms 70 because it is perfect and its in a special holder so im sure that its perfect.so then would it really be worth 600 dollars?

Perfect also means full steps on the back, at least 5 of the 6 steps should be visible.

But yes at least $600 possibly $1,200.

Here is a price guide that are slightly off compared to retail value but still good.
Nickel values

You will notice two 1950 nickels listed.
MS is mint state
FS is full steps where 6 of 6 steps are visible on the building in the back. (That would be over $20,000 if perfect.

all of the steps are visible and very clear.so how much would it be worth?

Man said...

About $20,000 if perfect but it has to be graded by a professional.

Man said...

what does high relief mean on a coin?

It is when the background is deeper than normal and the design stands out higher.

Assuming MS-67 about $10,000 but again it has to be verified.

where could i get it graded at?

PCGS they ae strict on grading Full Step coins so even if there is a tiny mark on the steps they will downgrade them.

there is a tiny mark on the front not the steps so would that help at all? and how much would it be worth if i can see 6 of 6 steps even without having it graded

hey man i was just wondering what is the most valuable coin you have and how much is it worth

Man said...

6 steps of any nickel from the 1950s start at $5,000 ungraded. As long as you have good pictures of the steps it can be sold easier.

and what was the highest valued coin that has been on your website that is real?

Man said...

Not sure since I don't really track that way.
I think it is an Off-Center Georgia quarter that is about $50.00.

Man said...

Someone asked about some the 2005-W Buffalo Gold coins, they were ungraded and worth $2,250 but I suspect if graded they would be 5 times the value.

Again not counting news stories about coins sold for millions.
