Which pennies have little value?

Some pennies are not selling too well at this time such as common date, circulated wheat pennies, heavily used Lincoln Memorial pennies, pennies from the last few years, and common modern cents. These are VERY common - spend them. They do not sell. We do not buy them unless we are forced as part of a larger collection of good coins.


What is a valuable old penny?

The 1943 bronze (copper) penny like this one is among the most valuable of rare pennies. It can be worth an amazing sum, but it must be COPPER not STEEL (the common ones are steel). If you have one of these, let us know!
