1964-D Lincoln Memorial Cent

If you follow this blog you know I collect most everything from my change but very common coins must be at least 50 years old to get a post. It is one arbitrary rule I set and keeps my collection in check.


I found the 1964 cent on January 2nd, 2014 and posted about it a few weeks later. Back in April I found this one and finally I get to show it off. Well not much to show off as the grade for this modern coin is not great and for not much money you can get an uncirculated version.

As a passive collector I let the coins come to me or pick them up from floors and trays when I can. There is no need to spend a fortune getting coins. There are literally hundreds of unique coins and currency in your change. Go ahead try and get one of each for the last 50 years and see how difficult and fun it will be, I'll wait...

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent  / United States
Year: 1964-D
Mintage: 3,799,071,500
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin, and Possibly Zinc
Value: $0.02 in EF-40

Do you have a 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.

These have been seen before it was believed they are foreign blanks the U.S. accidentally used for our coins. The are 5 cent size and the exact path has not been found.

Still great coin on average they are about $200.00 in mint state.
