1946 Wheat Cent

Although this is a very common wheat cent it has not been featured here at Coined For Money. Possibly I overlooked some or dismissed others but I think I just have not found many of them despite being common.



With almost a billion made it should still be fairly easy to find. Copper cents tend to last longer and better than their copper plated modern versions. I saw this one in my change because of the dark brown color and bold design. The modern copper coin do not get as brown and the design are much more flat.

Also found a 2008 Canadian dime but that one was featured here before so no need to repeat.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1946
Mintage: 991,655,000
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.10 in VF-20 (this one may be less)

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.

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