1935 Wheat Cent

Just to show how difficult it is to find older coin this is only the fourth 1930s cent I featured. Every year that passes it gets harder to find very old coins. Now the most common old find are from the 50s while just a decade ago 1940s coins were relatively common.

This one has a nice pattern that may have been caused by cleaning. Years after cleaning a coin the damage left behind is often nice looking. Value is not important since this is not a key date it will always be low.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1935
Mintage: 245,388,000
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.15 in F-12

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.

I have a 1949 wheat penny with the D mint mark flawed and also on the other side the d in the word United is also flawed. Both of these seem to be almost non-existent with the extra copper that seem to be dripped on them. Can you tell me if this it is a legitimate flaw

Yes a real error called Die Break errors, no extra value.

Too many fakes exist to estimate. It has to be seen in hand and weighed by an expert.

Depending on error type anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000.
