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.
might get rejected by coin machines
worth 1 cent .. maybe.
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.
Close to full red.
dogs can't see color.
But they can smell color.
Yes they can, just not as broad a spectrum as humans:
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.
New and shinny??? Heck Bud and I have never had anything New and Shinny, darn hurts Bud's feelings. Thanks furfrog, he will get over it..I hope
Am I lucky Bud can't read, you guys would have him packing his bags and moving out...Can't believe that we thought our bright new 1944 Lincoln color RED cent was so nice and it got shot down like a dirty dog...poor Bud
<-POOR BUD so sad
I got this today. I usually don't save too many zincs but it looked pretty nice for being over 25 years old.
Looks better than....nice. Have a reverse shot.
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
