Hello all,

I have a few ? about US pennies.

1. 1946 no mint mark Wheat penny: I have seen some online info about this being upgraded in value. Could someone please confirm or dispute that?

2. 1970-S Large cent proof in its original sealed cellophane from Littleton Coins: It appears to me to be flawless with a nice dark copper toning. Should I remove it from the cellophane to get a better look? (photo)

3. 1908-S Indian penny: I would appreciate it if someone could estimate the grade. (photo)

4. 1959/1960 new pennies: I am trying to grade. They are all virtually flawless with nice dark red luster, but I am not experienced enough to know about the quality of the "strike." Would greatly appreciate some advice. (photo)

5. 1969-D new "floating roof" memorial pennies: I have a few of these and would like to get some advice on their grade. (photo)

(I still working on improving my photo skills, but I would appreciate any comments on that also)

Thanks for all your help!

2. You can remove it,Littleton is a bit of a shady company,IMHO
3.Pic?
4. Pics?
5.Pics. Needs to be totally floating to be a keeper,and even then small if any premium.

#1, #4, #5: all these dates are common, so all would be low value unless they are some kind of special error
#2: small date can be somewhat valuable depending on condition, large date not so much. Google how to tell the difference and plenty of sites with high-res photos will show you.
#3: can be a valuable coin depending on condition.

I am trying to upload the images I mentioned in the pennies post. According to his notes, my great uncle purchased the 1959/1960 pennies at the Philly Mint.









Thanks!
