Actually pennies was correct.

That's a good reason. Good luck.
Now, People grade things for a host of reasons. you can do what you like as I said previously, Personally none of them are candidates for a high grade or even Mint state grade. and for that reason, not worth the expense to get them graded.
However, maybe it was a gift from granpappy, or some other reason why you'd want to spend the money.
Ill tell you what, split the difference, send them to ANACS, they have an authenticate, grade, and encapsulate 12 coins for $119 special going, including FREE return shipping, you can get a dozen of your speculations out of the way on the cheap ($10 each) and it won't hurt so much.
offer expires on January 09, 2021. so you'd need to hurry of course, but ANACS is always running a special a few times a year. Anyays, it's somewhere around $12 per coin for ICG, and probably around $25 a coin for PCGS (and you need to a membership) or NGC $17-22 each plus shipping.
If you're gonna gamble and play with grading, I'd do it as cheaply as possible and learn from it.
But it's all up to you of course.
What were your expectations from this post?
You’ve ONLY told/shown us that you plan to submit three or possibly four common-date, circulated Lincoln Wheat Cents as your 1st submission to PCGS. And with little more explanation.
Most responses basically said that it’s not worth the investment.
If you include your expectations with your inquiry, you'll likely get responses that are more helpful and less sarcastic.
@Salvador Villalobos ...for the record, I am not a hater, I am a trainer/teacher/educator...and the 14th ( at last count) member advising you not to send these to a TPG for grading or authentication or slabbing (encapsulation).
You will not get bad advice here. We don’t “work both sides”.
I have given you advice on your previous posts, but calling us haters does not help you..imo...Spark
Go and submit them.
Then post the results.
Then ask "why" you got the results from PCGS, and tell us how they may vary from what you thought they were.
It's always good to put one's money to prove a point,
then one becomes less likely to make the mistake(s) again.
Actually it should be "Cent" not penny. It says so on the back of each one.
Just for your info Salvador, I speak 3 languages, my wife is fluent in 5 and the correct numismatic term is still DOUBLED
I really don't think our CT members are being Hateful, just trying to be Helpful.
If you have coins that you think warrant TPGing, of coarse it's entirely up to your discretion.
Consider yourself lucky that some of us do not (yet) have you on ignore.
Dude. Not even as a joke. You never know who'll land on this thread from a Google search...
How about "Not for thinkers" not intended to be hateful...
That's pennies, not penny's.
I believe penny is appropriate as it is a common term for the one cent coin.
Like how a lot of British people call the pound sterling “quid”.
"Pennies" IS the correct form of the plural for penny. @l.cutler, you beat me to it, and I suspect @potty dollar 1878 perhaps is thinking of the coins belonging to his neighbor, Penny Olson, hence "Penny's."
What was new was that "pennies" is correct for a number of coins, while pence is correct for an amount of money.
Now, the question is: do we say it correctly and sound British? My wife is tired of me trying to get the world to pronounce "err" correctly (NOT pronounced "air"). She says, "Go ahead and pronounce it correctly and let everyone else think you're goofy."

@Salvador Villalobos. However, I should remind you that a fool and his money are soon parted.
