Imagine my excitement when I saw this 1963 (LMC) starting at me in a roll,

Maybe it's because I'm a Crazy Canuck and don't know, but out of curiosity,
why do you think it is worth more than a regular circulated coin.
Am I missing something?

You can buy uncirculated ones for around a dollar.

Check eBay at just how many "BU" (circulated=wear on coat) Memorial cents languishing unsold there are before you quit your day job.


Been there(CCF), and there(eBay), and there(auction houses), and even there( (207) Not Allowed - Auto-Removed )...done that over again and again...still can't afford to buy a cheap T-shirt!

That is a nice circulation find. Fun to keep, but doesn't have too much value. I'd keep it!

I have an entire 5 gallon bucket of them, all 63s and 64s, that we give away to kids at shows.

It's still a great find. Hopefully you can upgrade your 1963 in your collection. Some years, for some reason, really good circulating examples are common.

That is very nice find, especially 50+ year old BU cent.

Although it does not have huge price tag, it's worth keeping it, IMO.

Not all Lincoln cents in BU condition are worth more than face value! The coin in question is NOT a key date coin, not a DDO/DDR, and not a error or variety! I recommend purchasing a 2018 RedBook, this will give you an idea of the values as well as key dates etc...

And stick around! There is a variable plethora of knowledge to be obtained here!

@cmurph, it is a way cool find and amazing that it is in such good condition. The problem is that there are a gazillion of them out there still in old Whitman folders, bank rolls, and (in the case of our @bobby) 5 gallon buckets.

Yours is great coin, but just not rare or valuable. Certainly save it in a 2x2 if you want--but there isn't a numismatic premium for it.

It's a nice example to have in a LMC collection, especially if you collect from rolls!

Without clear pictures, it's hard to determine the grade/value. Generally, the 1963's found in circulation aren't worth much unless they are very high grade, i.e. MS-66 or higher.

Here's mine, found after searching ten's of thousands of coins:

They are VERY valuable in high grades, especially wheat cents. As far as Memorial cents, don't listen to most people, they can be worth a ton in the highest grades. Most collectors dismiss them and will tell you their worth 1 cent - that argument loses at the highest grades:

I found a Memorial cent searching bank rolls that I sold for $550.....that should put it in the proper perspective!

I've heard of high grade cents selling for thousands at auction just because they're the highest grade or just ms67 and up. Maybe if they're just circulated and still high grade and not uncirculated that's what makes them of value maybe?
