    Ear error is forsure....

    How much do these go for? Are they worth collecting?

    Sorry, but you just have a circulated coin with some damage. The ear looks like it took a hit, not something that would occur during the minting process

    The only thing for sure is that you need to learn more about numismatics and the minting process.

    In my view, yes... Any wheat cent that displays complete lines in the wheat stalks is absolutely worth collecting. There is numismatic value there, however little intrinsic value. Maybe a ten cent coin on a good day.

    You're in trouble now! Where's the grammar police? @cpm9ball- Have you seen @paddyman98? Just kidding, just kidding!

    Still a nice coin! I'll go 5 cents.

    With that ear hit and the big boil on his neck I’d say face value as well. I’d say release that one back into the wild for someone else to find and enjoy for awhile.

    If it goes back in the "wild," it may come back to haunt us.

    First of all, Welcome to CT. If you have been following this forum, you've probably surmised that while some members are blunt or come off as rude with an attempt at humor, there are some well-known experts that give excellent advice to new comers. Secondly, try to always post well focused, correctly oriented, and cropped photos that show just the coin, obverse and reverse. Preferably on a plain white or black background. Your table cloth makes it difficult to view your coin. Post FULL size close-ups of the areas you have questions about. Most of all, enjoy the hobby and learn as much as you can. Ciao

    @Bellainvtori ...to help you on your next post, try a better title.

    F’rinstance, for this post...in what way is the ear in error? So, you might title the post as follows: “1945 D penny has cauliflower ear”...or some such. Let us know what you are thinking about the coin in question...just a suggestion.

    Wheats in this condition have wear and environmental damage and have no real appeal. Currently normal wheats similar to this one grade around XF40, are worth 10 to 15 cents but will only sell to a LCS (local coin store) for 2 cents. The exceptions are key dates or coins in much better state of wear. Wheats are very common and plentiful...the mint made umpteen billions from 1909 to 1958...Spark

    If your only interested in making money you're definitely in the wrong hobby! Take the time to learn numismatics and what is valuable and what isn't. There are many opportunities for you if you know what you're doing, take your time and read some of the many references available for purchase and for free. It may take some time but you'll be better off in the long run. Try "A Guide Book of United States Coins by R S Yeoman" to begin with, and coneca.com, varietyvista.com and several others. Most importantly have fun!
