1936 Wheat Cent

Finally I got a few good coins in my change. It has been more than a year since I last found a wheat cent in my change. Again the overuse of cards and online shopping has cut my finds to a fraction of what they use to be. Still finding this less than perfect 1936 cent was great.


As you can tell in the first picture the coin is in bad shape. I would guess 4 out of 70 better known as Good-4. The 9 in the date is dented, there is some verdigris, and most of the design is flat.

For those of you that have been furloughed and need to make a little extra money selling coins like these will not help. In general you need high grades coins or coins that have a minimum of $100 if raw and not graded. So you may have some time to spend going through your change and organizing your collection so why not start today. I will be online to answer questions or giving you better links than this humble blog.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1936
Mintage: 309,632,000
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.15 in G-4

Pink background for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is literally the least I could do.

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.
