Wheat Pennies

The Lincoln Wheat Cent is a classic early 20st century American coin.

The Lincoln Wheat Cent has a face value of 1 cent that was minted from 1909 to 1958. We usually pay 2 cents for each Wheat Cent. They are very common.

The coin is made out of mostly copper, but steel versions of the coin were issued during World War II. The Wheat Cent is also known by collectors as the Wheat Penny.

But just found a 1943 copper Wheat Cent…..

It is very unlikely that you actually have a real one. They are expensive because they are VERY rare. Many 1943 copper penny fakes exist.
