    So i wanted to know what the price would be for my collection of wheat cents.
    This collection is not complete with coins in the folder (1909-1940) range in grades between fair-fine were as most coins in the second album (1941-1974) range from good-AU. (some possible MS, and maybe even one-two BU cents.)
    I do know it will be hard to grad these and to determine their value, so any help is appreciated.

    Question: Where the dates worn off in the first picture?

    Wheat cents are not worth much. Low circulated grades are worth .02-.04 MS/BU $1 or more.

    Missing the keys and semi-keys, probably not as much as you are hoping...

    No dates are missing on the cents.

    Thanks for all the help! :D BTW, what would you be willing to pay?

    Would it be worth 30-40-50 dollars?
    More? less?

    I meant the dates on the folder itself.
    As for a price I'd say around $10 as non cents stated you do not have any semi key or key dates. If you had just 1 of them the value would rise significantly. That or if the pennies you have are in much better condition.

    No, the dates are all there on both folders.
     
  9. The VDB S- wheat penny is worth about $750-$1000, don't you know?
    But... I'll offer $10 for it. ;)

    .03 cents a piece to the right buyer.
     
  11. "What is my coin worth?" he asks. The other replies, "Whatever someone is willing to pay for it."
    My advice is some will have integrity and give you an honest evaluation of your coins; others, well, not so much.
    I don't deal in pennies so no conflict of interest here. I posted a chart for you that you can obtain online that gives you some prices of pennies. My thought is to go thru your collection, penny by penny, and see if you have any of these key pennies that have exceptional value. Then go to a reputable coin dealer and perhaps get the key ones graded.
    Nice collection, by the way. Cheers
    Lincoln Wheat Penny Value Chart
    The following chart lists the value (what you can expect a dealer to pay you) for your Lincoln Wheat penny. The first column lists the date and mint mark (small letter below the date, if there is one) followed by the value of an average circulated Lincoln cent and the average value for an uncirculated one. These are approximate values and the actual offer that you will receive from a particular dealer will vary depending on a number of factors.
