Gonna have to save that wheat penny

August 4th, 2010 at 05:06 am

Yesterday someone dropped a 1927 wheat penny in front of the parking meter. Actually that someone dropped a 1927 - S penny, with a little 's' underneath the year.

For laughs, I looked up its value

Text is here and Link is

Whoa! 40 cents.

    About six weeks ago or so when counting the children's offering, we found a 1942 wheat penny. As far as I can tell though, it's worth .... $.01. Smile

    My brother is a hugh collector of coins. He always has expensive coins in his pocket that he buys and sells. I keep telling him someone is going to mug him.

    frugaltexan - all wheat pennies are worth at least 3 cents, interestingly enough.

    campfrugal - I think I'd be more worried that as he was mugged, the mugger didn't understand the value of the coins and would think your brother was dissing him.
