1951 Wheat Cent

Yes another common wheat cent from the 1950s. I have found a bunch of these recently and few from earlier years. I got more 1940s coins last decade and few from the 50s, now it has flip flopped.

Expect to see less wheat cents as we go into a coin/currency free society. Also take note since now 1964 cents are 50 years old they will be seen as more collectable especially among the young collectors. They are still common but age does make them attractive.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent / United States
Year: 1951
Mintage: 284,576,000
Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
Value: $0.05 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.
