Hi, Kevin! In my collection, I have some Canadian coins, too. It seems that every so often I will get some in my change and I will always keep what I find. When I was in high school, I dated a guy in the Navy who knew I collected coins so he brought some from wherever he landed. I've got a weird collection (although small) of foreign coins. The wheat pennies seem to be the easiest "old" coins to still find regularly.

I hope that you find some cool coins when you check yours out! wink

I have a bag of over 5,000 wheat pennies and have never found the time to go through them. Which 5 do you need to complete your set? I may be able to get them for you...

That's my two sense. Cheep.

Hi All
Hopefully someone can give me some guidence. My father collected wheat pennies. He passed away and now I don't know what to do with them. Any one give me some suggestions. They are rolled and labeled. I have a number of hobbies and am not interested in keeping them.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Reddlady,

I would think maybe someone in your family would want to keep them.... they may be worth something if you can find someone to buy them or save them and they go up in value as they become harder to find.

You could always just spend them as pennys but that seems like a waste of your fathers hard work to collect them....

take them to a hobby shop and see if they will buy them from you or at lest tell you what they are worth....

that is all my knowlege of coin collectting....
good luck to all!

Hi Marda if you still have the wheat pennies. I do buy them and collect them. I have a website at www.rogerscoinshop.com where I am buying pennies. I currently am paying 3 cents for each wheat penny. You can contact me through the website if you still have the pennies to sell. Roger

My husband goes metal detecting as a hobby and he has found a lot of wheat pennies lately in older neighborhoods. I love it when he finds new coins so we can research them and find out more about them and their value.

reddlady, since they are already labeled, get a Red Book from your library or a book store and go through the years to make certain there aren't any key or semi-key dates before you sell them for the minimum (which is 3 cents each). If, by chance, they are graded already that would be a bonus as the higher the grade (they don't necessarily have to be shiny and new) the more they are worth as well.

Good luck!

Trish, that sounds interesting smile Do you have older Canadian coins in your collection? I haven't found anything of much value, but they are all interesting and fun.

I collect Wheat Pennies, If anyone is selling their collection email me. cubanlink38@yahoo.com. Let me know the year of your wheat cent and how much you want for it. I collect for fun not for profit.
