Does anybody like to collect wheat pennies? I have a good amount of them in my coin collection. I am only missing five for the entire series. Rarely do you see any of these in circulation.

Anytime I find a wheat penny in my change, I keep it. I guess most people do if they find them which is why we don't see them much anymore. I remember when you could still occasionally find mecury head dimes and buffalo nickles. Those are really rarities! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I am missing the 1909S VDB, 1909S, 1911S, 1914D, and the 1931S. These are known as key dates and semi key dates for a series.

I have a few wheat pennies and a few buffalo nickles. They are rare as I too hold on to them. But a collection, not mine. That is awesome.

Hi, CCeditor! What is the VDB after the 1909S mean? I recall seeing it before, but I just can't remember what it means.

I have a couple of collections, too. I'll check and see if I have any duplicates of the ones you need and let you know.

Hi, hugs! It is really awesome to have some of the old coins. Do any of your buffalo nickels have dates on them? How about the old mercury head dimes? They were really pretty...alot different than the Roosevelt dimes we have now, right?

You know what name they call us?

Trish, the VDS and 1909S, I believe relate to where and when they were stamped, or minted. Personally I don't collect coins (stamps for me thank you). But last summer I got back a 1950 ten dollar bill as change...I keep it in my jewelry box as well as some african coins from when my grandfather went on african safaris in the 60's & civil war era gold and silver pieces. =]
Coin collectors are also called 'Numismatics' and a good site that I found was coinworld.com.

VDB stands for Victor D. Brenner. He was the person that designed the Lincoln penny. On some of the 1909 pennies, his initials are found on the reverse or back side. They were removed in that same year, and returned in 1918 on the obverse or front side. The S is a mint mark from the San Francisco Mint. I hope that helps. I found a 1925 penny yesterday in circulation. It was in pretty rough shape. A Coinworld magazine subscription is going to be one of my Christmas presents from my mother in law this year.

I love wheat pennies. I started collecting them when I was a kid. I have no idea which I have and don't have. I do have a 1931 penny, but not sure of the stamp on it. I have the hardest time with that part. Some large, some small, D, P, VDB. The oldest penny I have is a 1914 one. i think or its a bit older than that.

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

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.

Thanks
Marda

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!

What do you know about a 1956 penny that looks just like a 1943 &quot;steelie&quot;? I have been collecting for 40 years and found this last week. I am completely befuddled over it and don't know what to think. I know about the 1943 coppers and the 1944 steelies, but a 1956 steelie&quot;? Any thoughts or suggestions?

I looked through my change and did find some wheat pennies and set them aside. I also have a buffalo nickel and a mercury dime, and various half dollars and whole dollar coins from the 70s.

I want to find a steel penny and indian head penny next.

Pre-1965 quarters & dimes is one clue to silver versus the sandwiched alloys. After 1964, the 90% silver coins were minted in a sandwich style.

Another 'test' is to drop the coin on a hard surface & listen to the resulting 'ring.' The silver is much more distinct tone.

Nickels between 1942 & 1945 were 35% silver.

There is so much to know. I will have to make categories for things to look out for in my change!

the fastest way of telling if you have silver or not is by looking at the side of the coin. You will not have any copper color in the coin. This works on dimes and quarters, the nickles are differnt, a large mint mark was placed above the dome of Monticello (P, S, D). Just to note: condition is big part of a coin so dropping the coin could put scratches on the coin and will reduce the value. A coin is valued by the silver content plus the condition. The conditions of rating the coin, there are about 12 main grading levels and 2 of those are broken down into several more. For example from my book, you have a 1942P nickle, the condition for one that is rated Very Fine the value is about $1.25 and for the highest rate is PF (Gem Proof) is $250, so now you can see that condition is the biggest part of the value. So protect your coins and don't wash them or polish/rub the coins!

I am looking at all the coins i come into contact with now. I have been having fun finding wheat pennies. Still no steel pennies. Still looking for silver dimes and quarters!

silver dimes and quarters are getting harder to find and I saw my first ever 3 legged buffalo nickel and it was in good condition too!

I know the wheat pennies are not worth much, but can they be kept together in a container? or is it best to keep them all separate. Seems like it would not be worth the effort.

A three legged buffalo! WOW, cool. How much is that worth?

the person who had the coin was offered close to $700 for it and my husband told her to turn it down because if she got it graded by PSG, it could be worth over $1,000 or even more! on the wheat pennies, you can put them into paper penny rolls, this would be best for them because they won't slid around and get scratched more.

Good idea Wiz! I will put some cotton alongside the container (pills) that I have them in so they won't slide.

I've been actively looking at my change these days, to the point where I ask to look at other people's change. Dan's granmother let me look through several bags of change she's been keeping for over a decade. And still the wheaties are hard to find, in comparison to all the memorial pennies out there.

I think in over a thousand pennies, I found three wheaties. And one Canadian penny, which I also look out for now.

I know wheat pennies aren't worth much right now, but maybe there will be a value on them later. It doesn't hurt to save them, in any case.
