    That isn't a real red cent. Look up what a red cent looks like and compare it to yours. Your's is damaged and nasty.

    Yes it is worth one cent. Your cent would not be considered Red.
    Red is the color grade of a brand New looking shinny cent.

    When my son was small, he used to call things like this "masty and stagustin'". It's an "MS" coin!!!

    When they say cents are "red" they aren't actually red but appear to be brand spanking new. (Mint state)
    Cents that actually have a red clay color are usually dug up from the ground, or otherwise environmentally damaged. I used to have a number of them cause they looked cool. I may have freed them into circulation.
    Since yours is a wheatie I would still save it, but the value is minimal.

    That explains why our first corgi would sit and stare at the lemon tree - must have thought it was a tennis ball tree.

    It's more simple than that:
    Lemon tree very pretty
    And the lemon flower is sweet...

    My guess is his use of "red" was literal, but also somewhat tongue-in-cheek? Surely we've all seen wheat cents that literally are red although not in the numismatic sense.

    I got this today. I usually don't save too many zincs but it looked pretty nice for being over 25 years old.

    Plus I got it metal detecting.
    I took one and it was blurry. Let me try another.
    I dug up a bunch of coins, but this must have been near the surface.
    Just under some wood chips or something.

    Going to assume this is NOT the coveted 1992-D Close AM
