    Welcome to the forum. If it is a common 1955 cent, it is probably worth only about 3 cents. There are extraordinary 1955 cents that are worth much more, but one should expect that probability to be very small. Only with a photo of both sides could one tell reasonably. But he probably should expect no more than the low value. I know that seems like ancient history to a young person, but in coins , it is recent times.

    Welcome to the forum again, it is an interesting place.

    Welcome to CoinTalk, desertgem has given some good advice. A good clear close up photo would let members help establish a condition, which can lead to a value.

    On coin dealers in the NYC area, a few minutes with your favorite search engine will provide a working list for you.

    Actually it took less than half a second to get this list.

    I apologize for over estimating the time it might take for the poster to load Google, type in the search terms and receive a response.
