Wheat pennies are very interesting. Come and learn all about the designer, and the steel penny, the infamous 1955 double die error, key dates, and some other errors.

Perpetually happy!
I used to always save different pennies...got rid of them a while back though.
Wish I'd saved them now that Canada has phased out the penny!!

It was very interesting. I have a question, if I may.

I was playing with my wheaties one day, a long time ago. My DH offhandedly said "if you have a 1943 copper penny let me know." So I flipped it over to him. I never saw him jump and run so fast! Confused He said they only made steel pennies that year and the copper one was priceless. He called a coin shop and they said it was most likely electroplated bronze, and if it was it would stick to a magnet. And it stuck like glue!

Do you have any knowledge of these?

Yes, if it it stuck to a magnet then it is a fake. Somebody took a steel penny and coated it in copper. It will stick to the magnet because it is still steel. Smiling

Well it seems that they are not worth very much.

Hi Bob! Do you have a 1914-D? Does any one else have one? They are very rare so I'm expecting not, but if you do, please speak up.

Ok I had to get the book out to look
You peeked my interest
I have the 1914 plain but am missing the D and S

I have the 1909 VDB and 1909 plain but not the S
I knew I was missing the S because my Dad told me the story of Grampa selling it.

The 1909 VDB is worth quite a bit.
Do you have a penny book?
