Good Day everyone,
I have a few 1983 pennies some with D on them some with no mark or at least one that I cannot find. I took a picture of this one I found in my pennies from heaven collection because I have so many I lost track of the other 2 I have as they are all in huge baggie. I would sincerely appreciate any help I can get with coins I have, so I can get rid of the ones taking up my makeup drawers. Thank you kindly.

It appears to be a normal cent, is there something about it that you feel makes it worth more than face value?

To the CCF.

If I understand your question correctly, LMC (Lincoln Memorial Cents) with no mint mark are minted in Philadelphia, (D for Denver, and S for San Francisco. coins of other years may have a 'P' mint mark - this also from the Philadelphia mint. Each having a value of one cent. Unless there is a grievous mint error on it - then the value may go up.

Unlike other U.S. coins of the last 40 (or so) years, Lincoln cents don't carry a "P" mintmark for Philadelphia—except in 2017, when cents carried the "P".

An example of a grievous error would be the doubled die reverse, or a large die flaw, etc.

Good Morning everyone,
I have gathered all my 1983 pennies and I believe I am better prepared to ask for help. So the 1st one is a 1983d Lincoln penny 2nd is a 1983 Lincoln penny with what appears to be very tiny lettering underneath date appears to me to resemble a V or M the other letter I cannot make out I have no magnifying glass to see it with 3rd appears to have some lettering in places that are odd like a p near Lincoln's necktie & a letter by nose also one over the numbers and one along rim on right side of coin. I could be crazy or going blind perhaps but I sincerely believe that my eyes are not deceiving me. I have horrible picture taking skills & after kids have broken numerous phones on me in past few months I have opted for cheap model which horrible at pics. Any suggestions from all you wonderfully helpful and kind collectors. Thank you again everyone. Also I have tons of old dated quarters and nickels as well as more pennies and a 2005 bison nickel or buffalo not sure as from NYC area so not many livestock roaming streets to know difference. I just need some suggestions on how to go about getting them all appraised or looked at without wasting my time not knowing what is what. Thanks again everyone.

Nice!

The nickels are called 'Buffalo' nickels..

Anyway, A good way to start is to separate your coins by type (cents, Nickels, Dimes, Quarters, etc) then once done with that by date and mint mark.

Then go through your coins by type. it is much easier to find abnormalies or errors because you can see differences from one to another.

Once you have done that, take some good pictures of the coins you find interesting and post them up here. (one coin per post, please) you may make a lot of posts to get your coin up for us to look at, but it makes it easier to look and comment on each one without confusion.

Thank you so very much Mr. Dearborn you truly are a dear for responding in a caring and understanding manner. I've got the organization of shoes, makeup and clothing down pat but I honestly was overwhelmed and baffled at the coins and how to proceed. I am definitely going to do that as soon as I get chance today and will post pics etc..of anything I think may be worth keeping. I sincerely appreciate your help and since we have dubbed collection pennies from heaven I know heaven appreciates it too.
Have a great day and will post soon.By the way Mr. Dearborn I love your quotes they are insightful and uplifting thank you for those as well.

1983 cents in anything but perfect, new condition (mint state) are worth exactly 1 cent. 1983's are very common and were minted in the billions. No point in saving them unless they are "new" like this one:

The collection doesn't sound too promising so far. Sounds like pocket change, aside from the "old quarters". Those have to be dated before 1965 to be worth anything
