Hi I found this penny shining bright compared to the other coin change I receive yesterday..
Is this worth keeping?

Nice-looking example, but looks like it's changed hands a few times. No harm in saving it, but it's extremely common.

Nice coin for being found "in the wild" more than 50 years after being minted. Could have been recently "dumped" at a bank or Coinstar machine after sitting in a collection or coin jar for a few decades.

If there is something missing in my personal collection and I come across a filler, regardless of how I come across it, and it is not MS70, the spot gets filled regardless, and, then, over the years maybe I upgrade. *(note... lol, I don't search for 70's, I was being... uhm, sort of... Canadian)

If you are in the USA, you still get an in circulation chance of an upgrade at face value, so, are you gonna come across a better one before that government stops minting Lincolns because, buying UNC's can become very expensive especially in the "Shipping & Handling" department!
