Hello everyone - Happy Saturday!

I found a ton of great condition 1986 Lincoln-cents in a customer-wrapped roll from the bank. Any idea if these might be worth something? My Google search showed some interesting auction figures. Lol!

The coin pictured appears to be a low(er) MS grade coin which has Die Deterioration going on with the obverse--the ridge ring just inside the rim.

Have you checked this?

Could you share some of those sold at auction? I would like to see what your going by. Even though these are nice looking their not worth more than face value unless these are graded MS-68 or higher. It's still a fun find

Agree. Probably not a great deal of added value here, but without seeing each coin individually it's impossible to say.

Yes, that video confirms the notion that any '86 would need to grade at the high end of the MS scale to be worth significant $$. This case is largely true for any Lincoln cent MS68 or better.

Go through your '86 pile and photograph the best one you find and post the images--large, high resolution, sharp photos--obverse and reverse. Thanks.

Here is the image of the listing for the coin on PCGS:

But note this one a few spaces down:

Same grade, same SRP, gut note the die state? a lot better than the first one.

But drop one grade to MS-67 and see the price difference:

Not even worth the grading fees for this one. Note the die state on this one. The ridge ring is starting to show already on this die.

They can be a good way to pratice high end grading. Pulling MS67 or better from circulation is rare but possible. Post your best in the grading subforum.
