    Here I am in "what its worth". Just thinking as I plan to sell part of my collection to grab some more high end goodies :D

    If I wanted to get rid of some of these, what should I ask? How can I get fairly compensated but also not try and rip someone off? grades and quantities in the photos.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    Well, honestly, anything from the late 30s, 40's and 50's is worth maybe 3-4c each, tops. These are usually sold in bulk by the pound.

    The coins from the teens and 20's, especially those with mintmarks, are worth a bit more. I'll assume they are properly graded, although you can check that here: https://www.pcgs.com/photograde/#/Lincoln/Grades

    For a rough estimate of what retail prices are, check here. I'd caution - these are strong retail prices for circulated wheat cents, and if you're selling them I'd expect about half to 2/3 of these prices: https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/united-states/cents/99/

    I'm still working on finishing my wheat album lol. I wouldn't want to buy them but let me know if you'd like to swap some of them :)

    Lots of foreign coins on my swap list.

    If I were in your position @Evan Saltis, I'd probably start by comparing sold eBay listings. Regardless, most of these are what you'd find in mixed rolls of wheat cents and are worth a few cents each.

    looks like we already had something which I mistakenly ghosted you on. Will be in touch!

    I get $64.95. I'll add them all up again, if you want, no problem. :)

    Are there any particular dates you're looking for @Matthew Kruse? I have an excess of duplicate wheat cents in my collection that I'd be willing to trade.

    This is numista.com, my favorite. I have nearly every coin of my collection on there and it is a user-managed catalogue. I enjoy browsing and adding listings when I can.

    Frank "Trader" Lane would have loved this thread. I see a very possible three way trade in the offing between Matthew, Bradley and this thread's esteemed author, Mr. Evan Saltis. I wouldn't mind seeing a pic of Evan's xf 18-s. If it has a little hue to it, we could be looking at a blockbuster four way transaction here.
