1942 Wheat Cent

Merry Christmas y'all! Just a quick post before I get back to eating and enjoying a day off. The 1942 cent is 70+ years old and is still common. Sorry but this wheat cent will not help you retire early.

 
A penny here or there does add up I found almost $5.00 on the ground this year. That is enough for a tiny gift, lunch, or even a charitable donation. I just hope people see pennies a bit different. Even if you do not and still drop them like trash I will be there to pick up the change.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1942
Metal: 95% Copper 5% Tin and Zinc
Mintage: 657,796,000
Value: G-4 $0.15

Do you have an older 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.:

Ive got a 1917 wheat penny with slight Knicks on rim. It hardly has any wear. On a scale 1-10, 10 being mint, i would lowball it atleast 7.5. Is it a keeper?

That would be Almost-Uncirculated grade which is about $10.00. It is worth keeping.
