Lincoln wheat penny valuesMost coin collectors got their start by collecting Lincoln pennies. For some of us more experienced (i.e. older) collectors, we can remember a time when Lincoln Wheat pennies could be found in circulation. Those times are now gone and the occasional wheat penny found in pocket change is a prize to be treasured. I have updated the Lincoln Wheat penny value and price guides. The value guide will give you an idea of how much a coin dealer will pay you for your Lincoln wheat cents. The price guide contains average prices that coin dealers charge for you to purchase Lincoln cents from them. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, these guides will give you the information you need to know to be a knowledgeable collector.

We love the wheat pennies and we collect and sell them also. We still find some of the wheat pennies in our change but its getting harder by the year to find them.

@donny Steel pennies are grayish and lighter but the easiest way to tell is if it is magnetic as no other American coinage is. Interestingly fun fact: About half of Canadian pennies that were made are magnetic.

I have an 1943 steel penny, but it is missing the 4 in the date. Is it worth more as an error coin?
