WHEAT PENNIES

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

The Lincoln Wheat Cent, minted from 1909 to 1958, has a face value of one cent. We usually pay two 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 I 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 fake 1943 copper pennies are being sold online.

El Lincoln Wheat Cent es una moneda estadounidense clásica de principios del siglo XX.

El Lincoln Wheat Cent, acuñado de 1909 a 1958, tiene un valor nominal de un centavo. Generalmente pagamos dos centavos por cada centavo de trigo. Son muy comunes. La moneda está hecha principalmente de cobre, pero las versiones de acero de la moneda se emitieron durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El Wheat Cent también es conocido por los coleccionistas como Wheat Penny.

¡Pero acabo de encontrar un centavo de trigo de cobre de 1943! Es muy poco probable que tengas uno real. Son caras porque son MUY raras. Muchos centavos de cobre falsos de 1943 se venden en línea.
